selectbox dynamic range options

i would like to dynamically output such a selectbox below using php
and mysql:
<option< 100 </option>
<option100 to 150 </option>
<option150 to 200 </option>
<option200 to 250 </option>
<option250 to 300</option>
<option 300 </option>

the selectbox will show a range of available prices of products in a

the table has the following fields:

so depending on the actual prices in the table, the selectbox will

if the cheapest thing is $1 and the most expensive thing is $1,000,
then the selectbox will change accordingly.
it will break the prices from $1 to $1,000 into categories:
for example...
< 10
10 to 500
500 to 900
i don't know what kind of sql to write to achieve something like this
could you please guide me in the right way to get started on something
like this?

a good example is: on froogle.com
they also have a similar price range search, which is dynamically
generated according to actual search results.

Yea, makes sense. I would grab all of the prices and put them into one
array and do a bunch of sorting with the array. Could you please give
me an example of what kind of sorting i could do with the array of
prices? I am still a but stuck on that.
Thank you very much for your help!
Check out http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.sort.php and
