I don't really know how to explain this, but here it goes....
I would like 1 dropdown box that'll show information, and when you select one of them, depending on which one you select, other selections appear in a sort of drop down next to it.
I tried to find a site that has that, but I couldn't think of any off the top of my head.

I couldn't see the link (got a DNS error). Based on what I've read, I think these are called "master_detail" type of forms. Your first pick produces a second list to pick from ect.
I don't know how to do them, but I've been told you could with php. I know that in HTML you can disable form controls by setting them to
DISABLE or READ ONLY. So I think that might be the key. Somehow setting the second drop down to DISABLE until the first dropdown has produced a choice.
