Okay im not sure i understand you- you want to create a page where it will 
suck an item out of a database, and use it to choose which item in a drop 
down menu should be selected?

If so, you can try something like

<select name="catagory>
        <option value="0"<?php if ($catagory == 0) {echo " selected"}; 
        <option value="1"<?php if ($catagory == 1) {echo " selected"}; 
        <option value="2"<?php if ($catagory == 2) {echo " selected"};

What I conclude is that religion has nothing to do with experience or reason 
but with deep and irrational needs
