    Well here is the basics how I would go about it (Im doing the very basics here):

    Create a category table, eg:

    categoryId | categoryName

    Then create a forums table:

    forumId | forumName | forumDescription | forumInCategory

    And have forumInCategory relate to categoryId, so if categoryId = 1, all forums with the value forumInCategory = 1 would be in that category.

    Sorry for being so vague, but im a bit busy, and Im not 100% sure i have the right idea.

    (also, just a minor criticisim, your topic name could have been slighly more descriptive, would you be able to edit it a bit so it better describes your problem?)
