Better Drop Down Menu

How do I make a better drop down menu in the navigation bar?
I added a static block to one of my categories and when you mouse over that category in the navigation bar you get this large pop-up for the newly added block.
The pop-up is really big and it partially obscures the category in the nav bar.
How do I get this to display as a drop down menu instead, so it doesn’t block the parent category?

I have no idea what you’ve done, but the default and modern theme’s have dropdown menus as standard. You’ll need to give us a little more information about what you’ve done?

Highwayman,
Thanks for the reply.

I created a static block called “Free Stuff” as a giveaway offer. I also created a “Free Stuff” subcategory in each of the categories that I wanted the “Free Stuff” block to show up in (Cabinet Cooling, Rack Cooling, Hardware and Accessories).
I also created a product page called “Free ipad” for the three “Free Stuff” categories so that when the block is displayed on the web site it will read “Free Stuff (1)”
Within each of the three “Free Stuff” subcategories I checked the box for the “Free ipad” product page so that it will displayed on the block.

I now have two problems.
One, the “Free Stuff” subcategory shows up in the navigation bar as a large pop-up that partially obscures the main category in the nav bar (as mentioned previously)
Two, the “Free Stuff” block displays on the web pages as “Free Stuff (0)”, as though there are no products being offered.

In case my explanation is totally incoherent, this is the web site address:  http://www.climatronix.com/

Please help!
