Need help with Categories and Sub Categories

I am also very new to PHP and I bought Powerstore. I would like to admend everything - database, admin and store to allow for the following:

Category - subcategory - list of products

So I would eventually like to have four main product catergories, then within these subcategories and then list of products:
Eg. Automotive - Air Flow Meter - Honda Air Flow Meter for Model4858
- Jaguar Air Flow Meter for Model5749
Marine -Motor Boat Engines - Model blah
- Model blahblah

I tried adding a subcategory name to the productcategories database in phpmyadmin but I don't know if I did it correctly or how to admend the template/information in powerstore to allow for the change in the database. Now I end up with errors when you try to add a category name and subcatgory on the admin productcategories insert page, so I have def done something wrong!

This is how my database looks since I changed it:

CategoryID int(11) No auto_increment
CategoryName varchar(50) latin1_german2_ci No
SubCategoryName varchar(50) latin1_german2_ci No

This is all new to me and hence the reason I bought Powerstore but I really need the subcategory feature due to the amount of very different product lines we hold. I hope that you can help me in this matter.

I can give you a link to my site so far if that helps?
