Can someone explain to me what the Flat Category/Product stuff actually does?

If I enable them on my client’s site, I can’t view the product listing, and my navigation breaks. The navigation consists of the categories, and the code breaks when it starts to list a nested category. I assume it’s altering the display of the categories? If so, I just made the entire category navigation a flat HTML file with hard coded links… which would be even faster than enabling Flat Category, if that’s all it does.

What exactly does Flat Catalog Product and Flat Catalog Category do? Why is it faster?

Thanks
