Need help with Categories and Sub Categories

Need help with Categories and Sub Categories

Hi, I am very new to PHP and ecart. I am constructing the database stucture within phpmyadmin.

I am currently trying to add subcategories to exisitng product categories and I'm completely confussed about the best and most simple way to do this ie:

Category - subcategory - further subcategory - list of products

I have my 'itemcategory' table setup on my database which has my main category ID and Names listed. I just really need to know the direction to go for adding the subcategories. Would I need to create a new table for these subcats? or would I create a new field within the 'itemcategory' table?

I would be most grateful if someone could help me solve this or point me in the right direction. Many thanks.
