Creating Links out of Categories in Search

Creating Links out of Categories in Search

I have a question that I am sure will get laughed at for its easiness...well, here it goes.

I generate all my pages for dataassist and so on. The search option is a drop down menu with categories in it. They select a category and get whisked away to the results page with the items that match that category. In my case, we'll use Children's Books and Infant Books, along with others.

What I would like to do is make those category choices, links that go down the side of the page, instead of options in the drop down. This way, someone could just click on a link that says 'Children's Books' and it would take them to the results page with all the children's books on them and so on.

Can someone help me figure out how to do this. I tried Googling it, but coulnd't find anything relevant enough.

Thank You
