Navigation Problems

Hey guys, I’m trying to create a navigation that would be similar to http://www.abercrombie.com/ , where there are no drop downs, and when you select a category you go to a page that would have all the children displayed. The problem is I don’t know how to do this. I tried using the code from left.phtml and it would work for top level categories, but when I am lets say in tops under women, that nav with all the other categories under women will disappear. How do I make this happen?

Code I tried using:

<?$_categories=$this->getCurrentChildCategories()?>
<?if
($_categories->count()):?>
<div class="box layered-nav">
        <
div class="head">
            <
h3><?=$this->__('Browse By')?></h3>
        </
div>
        <
div class="border-creator">
        <
div class="narrow-by">
                                <
dl id="narrow-by-list">
                <
dt><?=$this->__('Category')?></dt>
                <
dd>
                    <
ol>
                    
<?foreach ($_categories as $_category):?>
                        
                        
<li>
                            <
a href="<?=$this->getCategoryUrl($_category)?>"<?if ($this->isCategoryActive($_category)):?> class="active"<?endif?>><?=$_category->getName()?></a>
                        </
li>
                        
                    
<?endforeach?>
                    
</ol>
                </
dd>
                                </
dl><script type="text/javascript">decorateDataList('narrow-by-list')</script>
                            
</div>
                        </
div>
                    </
div>
<?endif;?>
