My original site had one store.  Need to have a second one.  Managed to add the second store just fine but I cannot figure out to to add a catagory to the second store and also how to case a category now set to all to be defined to only the old store.

Need to have the following

Website
Store 1 with it’s own category menu
Store 2 with its own category menu

Also cannot figure out how to make the store names show up in tabs on the site? 

Thanks
Dave

Dave,
First go to [catalog] [manage categories] under your admin.  Then select [add root category] this will be the new category for your new store.

Next, go to [system] [manage stores] and select the store that you recently created.  You will see a choice for [root category], choose the new root category that you created. 

I’m not sure on the store tabs.
