Product categories

I am still in the process of getting products into my store. I have created a csv and imported the products and that works fine. the all appear in the store. The next step is categories.

I created another csv for the categories, imported that in and it is fine. The products have to be linked to the categories. 5500 products some with multiple categories leads to almost 5900 linkings. I created another csv (for the life of me I don't know why you choose to use ProductID instead of ProductSKU for the linking) for this and imported into ps3_productcategories. When I go into admin and check on the products they appear to be in the correct categories. Mind y9ou I didn't check them all but a select random handful were all correct.

Now the problem, form the site page, if I click on all products they show up but if I choose a category I get an hourglass for a few minutes then nothing. I cannot search by category.

1.) Any ideas on what might be wrong and how I can fix this.

2.) When I uploaded my products I had made the long description a larger text size but I see this has no effect on the detail description. Is there a universal category where I can set all detail descriptions to be larger or do I have to do this one at a time for each of my 5500 products?
