Use Javascript to submit the form based on onSelect for the first select
box then select teh values for teh second selectbox based on the value
selected in the first select box and show. This way you can do with
lesser load on server.
The second way is to select values for all and stoe in an array based on
javascript onselect show the respective array. here you need to
preselect all the values and show.
