I need to give a user choice of  wether a field has either been chosen or discussed or ignored

Basically
                  chosen            discussed       not suitable
Detached      [ ]                     [ ]                      [ ]  <-------badly drawn checkboxes...lol
Semi Det       [ ]                     [ ]                      [ ]  

the values selected then have to be entered into a database along with the client and advisor ID
As the list of selections is going to be quite big I need to populate a list of descriptions somehow from a sql table, and the replies along with the client and advisor ID in a seperate table.
This is to be implemented on a windows form application, VS2008 and sql2008 back end

Any help/solutions/ideas folks ?
cheers M
