Where do things really live?

So, I finally gave up on trying to get my items to show up on the home page.  I Thought I would get smart and install the sample data.  Now, Im trying to figure out where things actually live.  Specifically, the links across the top for “Furniture, Electronics, Apparel”.  Based on my interaction with other CMS’s products out there, I thought those links would be created dynamically and stored in the DB when a catagory was created, but that doesnt apper to be t the case.  At that point, I did a recursive grep through all files in the docroot, and didnt find anything(didnt think I would, but what the helk).  Im off to read more about Magento so I have a better understanding of whats happneing.  If anyone has a quick answer to my question, it would be greatly appreciated.

They are stored in the DB.  Read my post in the other thread about products not showing on the home page and see if that solution works for you.  I don’t know if it’s the right way to do it, but it worked for me.
