  Should I basically drop the text fields from the main Products table for Category and SubCategory, but rather just have CategoryID and SubCategoryID.

And then have tables Categories and SubCategories.

And then in the pages that list each category, use the join query on those pages to look up Category and SubCategory in the Categories and SubCategories tables?
Edit/Delete Message  

yes, that is it exactly,

One table for categories, another table for subcatagories and another table for products:
categoryID - primary key
categoryName - text

subcatID - Primary Key
subcatCategoryID - integer - relates to categories.categoryID
subcatName - text

productID - Primary key
productCatID - integer - relate to categories.categoryID
productSubCatID - integer - relates to subcategories.subcatID
productName - text
