OK...  I think I understand what you are getting at here, but I
don't think this actually addresses the problem that I am having.  I have,
in other places, the direct value successfully passing from one page to
another.  In this case, what I am lacking is the selected data actually
getting populated into the array in the first place.

Your code:
while($name = mysql_fetch_row($groups_tmp)) {
  $grp_list .= "<option>$name[0]</option>\n";

should be changed to:
while($name = mysql_fetch_row($groups_tmp)) {
  $grp_list .= "<option value=".$name[0].">$name[0]</option>\n";

The value property of the option tag is actually what gets submitted to the
next page.  The text that immediately follows <option value=x> is what is
displayed to the user.

So, for this (HTML) code:
        <OPTION VALUE=1>Thing One
        <OPTION VALUE=2>Thing Two

The user would see a list with:
Thing One
Thing Two

The next page would get either 1 or 2 as the value for Test.

        I don't really understand this suggestion.  Could someone possibly
expound on this further?  Maybe an example?  Thanks.

You need the value parameter for the option tags:
