Drop-Down list, forms and asp.

Ok to simplify things I'll just give an example.
This is pretty much what I want to do (minus the postcode):
http://www.perrys.co.uk/usedcar?ID=F5J9BNNBMVK00DF

I have relatively little experience with databases (hate being a n00b)
but I'm currently attempting to put myself through some sort of crash
course..

How far have I got?
Ok so using MS access 2003. I have a table (table1) with data with a
bunch of cars on them: make, model, price etc.
I go into forms, new form and form wizard, with the objects data
coming from table1. Click OK and create a form with (lets just say)
"Make" in it. I want a drop down list box so in the form design view I
right-click on it and "Change to"... there's no drop-down list box
only "list box" and "combo box" even though "help" said there would
be. So I picked Combo box cos it looks like a drop-down list. I don't
know how to use it though and I'm obviously way off. I'm thinking it
has something to do with needing a query right? (stupid stupid
newbieness, at least I'm probably making you laugh) Basically what I
want to be able to do is get a drop-down list (not a fixed list) of
Makes of cars and when I click on one of them I get a tabular view of
all the cars of that make and their details.. Is this possible and
relatively easy? God please say yes.. Any insight anyone could be
offered would be great..

Cheers
