add select list from data in another table
Basically, I have a custom table that I want to use as a relation for the Links table. The Links table has a "style_fk" field, which corresponds to "styleID" in the custom table. What I need to do is to generate a select list from the "styleID" and "styleName" fields from this table, so the user can select the proper style. (I realize I could have made the style column an ENUM and listed all the options there, but it seems like that might get messy since there are already 50+ choices, and I may want to add more columns to the custom table later anway.)

It would also be extremely helpful if this would work in the admin page as well.
