Proper SQL syntax for a MySQL insert query with inner join?

What would be the proper way to write a query like this?

insert into productcategory(Fkproductid,fkcategoryid)
   ((select DISTINCT pg.fkproductid from productgroupdetail pg
      INNER JOIN temp t ON pg.sku = t.sku),64)

I'm basically attempting to insert the fkproductid of all sku's in temp table + the fkcategoryid of 64 into the product table.

table structure:

productcategory has 2 fields, both int(10): fkproductid, fkcategoryid

temp has 1 field, sku(varchar(20)

productgroupdetail has sku(varchar(20)), fkproductid(int(10))


Thanks!

Ah, now I see; the SQL syntax comes after the values.

So the typical structure would be:

INSERT INTO tablename (fields)
value1, value2, etc
followed by join syntax and/or where clauses, etc.
