I have navigation menu with images that are appearing underneath my drop down boxes which are near where the menus are to unfold.  

Here's the question . . .
Is it possible to display an image over a select?
If not do you have any good samples of how to perform a select with
DHTML so we can pop up an image over it.

better idea, just hide the selects when dropping the menu.  DHTML selects are very confusing and require a lot of code that is unecessary if you just use a normal select and hide it:

<script type='text/javascript'>
<!--

  function DropMenu()  {               //This is whatever function drops the menu
    for(i=0;i<document.childNodes.length;i++)  {
      if(document.childNodes[i].tagName == "select")  {
        document.childNodes[i].style.visibility = "hidden"
      }
    }

    //Rest of your function goes here

  }

  function unDropMenu()  {
    for(i=0;i<document.childNodes.length;i++)  {
      if(document.childNodes[i].tagName == "select")  {
        document.childNodes[i].style.visibility = "visible"
      }
    }

   //Rest of the function here

  }
