It can't really be done in PHP because PHP is server-side.  You'll need a
client-side language (e.g., JavaScript) to do it.  They may have something
for this on:

<http://javascript.internet.com/>

Other than that, you could have the user do a limiting search on the DB for
the item first, and then make the drop box from that.
