Linked List Boxes in Table

My current project consists of a six column table.  The first four columns each will contain a drop down list.  The lists are linked to each other.  (When the user selects an entry in column one, it will allow selection of entries in column two IF the column two entries are linked to column one.  Etc, etc to column 4.)  The last two columns will contain command buttons.  Something like this...

    |Col-1|Col-2|Col-3|Col-4|Col-5|Col-6|
    | list   | list  | list  | list   | Cmd| Cmd|

I am in the investigation phase; researching the various techniques and structures needed to do the above.  So, my questions are fairly general in nature...

* Are there examples or tutorials or helps for the above structure, or elements of it,
   I could review?

Initially, I think my approach will be to "simply" place the lists inside the table cells, and add the linking code, and to add the command buttons also within their own table cells.  So, I don't think this will require any special tricks or techniques.  Right?

Sounds straightforward enough.  Put each select box in its own <td> and put each command in its own <td>.

Then add code in the form of a function between your <head></head> tags that will "link" as you say, the select boxes.
