That sounds very close to what I'm trying to do.  Is it necessary to reload
the page every time a selection is made?  Do you have examples of this that
work with multiple pull-down menus?

Usually people do this with javascript, but you could use
javascript/php/mysql mysql for the data, php to create the dynamic drop down
menus and javascript to refresh the page once someone has picked an option.
