You'll want to create two tables called products and cateogries. In the products table you store all your products that you have when you create your table make sure you create an extra row cam call that catid as this will be used for getting the correct products for each category. SO you products table will loook like this:

Products
|
+- pid
+- name
+-description
+- price

... more rows here ...

+- catid

Now you categories table will look like this:
Cateories
|
+- cid
+- name
+- description

Now when you do your MySQL Query you'll want to do it like so:
SELECT * FROM products WHERE catid = $_GET['cid']

$_GET['cid'] is passed over the url like so: products.php?cid=1

Then the sql will be ran and will get all the products with the catid of 1.
