Can someone please tell me where I can find some instructions on how to create menus similar to the ones found in the websites below.  It's a large "box" or area that contains ALL the sub-navigation/categories that are relate to the main category.

http://www.sears.com/ 
Mouse over anything in their "Shop Departments" area and you'll see it.

http://www.target.com/
Mouse over anything in their main navigation ( ie. Women, Men, Baby, Kids, Shoes, etc.) and you'll  see the large sub menu appear.

Even http://www.gettyimages.com/ 
Mouse over "Images" or "Footage" and again, you'll see it.

All the tutorials that I've found online show how to create a "single item" subnav.  I'm trying to create that large box that has everything in it.

Thanks Experts!

Actually that link I sent you is free.  I've used them before and it's CSS based with a little java for some of the effects. (at least the older version did)
Try it out.  If that doesn't work, let me know and I can see if I have any more in my bag o'fun.
