Default Dynamic Select Tag

I have a need to build the values in a select based upon a choice made in another select box on my form. The values need to pull from a databse. Anyone have any thoughts on how I should go about this?

can you load all of the data onto the client side ? if so, something like http://www.greggriffiths.org/webdev/...nkeddropdowns/ may help. Other alternatives could be :

Use another Frame/IFrame to pass the first selected value back to the database and have Javascript returned in there populate the second.

Post the entire form back to the server for processing.
