Farm wide Navigation (SharePoint 2007)

I am trying to implement a farm wide navigation (global) across a SharePoint 2007 farm that has about 15 site collections.
We want to be able to control the navigation through a list in one location, if possible.  Is this possible and how?

in general - yes - this is possible.

You have multiple options - the following three in my mind:
1. Create your own Navigation Provider / control

2. Use XSL and DataView Web Part
3 part series:
Or from our Expert teylyn:

3. Use only jQuery / client side
Pretty like option 2 - but not using the dataview web part but SPServices library building the navigation on the client side

Each of the options have pros and cons - it depends a little bit on your environment and usage - the more user the better a coded approach with object/data caching would be suggested.

Option 3 is used in SharePoint 2010.  Do you think it will work for SharePoint 2007?
Rainer JeschorCommented:
I am pretty sure that all of the above options can and will work in MOSS 2007.

My goal is to use the method found here and add the mega menu talked about in option 2.

I'll see how that goes.  Thanks!

So, I was able to get this (  working on my vm but not sure how to get the mega menu working the same way.  The link above works great if I had just a few links but I have many and the mega menu will seem to do the job but I don't want to have to change each master page of the site collection to get it to work as "teylyn" blog seems to suggest.

Any ideas?
