How do I add subproducts in Magento?

I was able to migrate my oscommerce/creloaded shopping cart using the MagentoConnect osc migration tool with the help of my very supportive webhost. Milestone moment. grin

Now, I have all of my products listed as simple products. However, most of them are variations of the same product. In other words, there is the main product, ex. soap, but there are different weights, prices, and SKU of the same soap. I’d rather keep my cart simple and list the different sizes as one product with the different weight and price options listed on the same page.

Could someone tell me the best way to add subproducts? I’m attempting to add sub products in the edit Product Information>Custom Options field but there is no way to account for the different weights/sizes. If Magento doesn’t have sub product feature, will I have to settle for cross-selling so that I list the different weights and prices? 

Oh, how I love Magento and my new webhost.

Thanks a lot,

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Does the Magento Team have any mulitple attribute field feature in in the edit Product Information>Custom Options field which will support subproduct listings? Or can this be a configurable product with different weights, prices and SKU’s included?
