how to make selected drop down menu to create another drop down menu

Hi, I know i'm doing it wrong, but I'm using a while loop right now to create several instances of a drop down menu. It gives me undesirable results. Can you tell me the right way to do it. Below are a bit of information on what i did if you want t read it.

When I choose select an option in the drop down menu and hit submit, I increase a counter, and a 2nd loop generates a second drop down menu with the same options. This is exactly what i want, but if i change the first option, that option will go back to the orignal chosen option. Only, the new instance of the drop down menu can be chosen. This is because i'm using a text variable that keeps track of each succession of choices, seperating each succession with a comma. It reads the text for the previous choices, and a new choice with be concatonated into the text. I found that the reason it will not change is because only the last instance of the drop downmenu is recorded when i press submit. The server where I wrote the php is down, so i cannot give you the codes.
