Looking to try something a bit different and not sure how to go about it. What would I need to do to have a data generated menu system similar to one found at http://www.projo.com/

None of the coding samples I have seen so far seem to work for me

The menu in your example link is dhtml/jscript and if you have your menu defined in a database, you need to have coldfusion write the necessary jscript out to the browser.  

This is not usually a plug-and-play peice of code like:
<cf_make_me_a_menu query="myquery"></cf_make_me_a_menu>

You will need to use a combination of writing coldfusion and understanding javascript.

What have you got so far?
