    Split sub-category index pages
    I have too many items to display on just one page - is it possible to say start a new page after so many items?

    Then of course I would want those pages to have good navigation between them.

    One way I've seen other sites handle a large amount of items is to categorize them if possible and just show a few items from each category on your main page with navigation to a different page that includes all of the items from that category. This kind of makes your main page an index with a preview of the category. If you open each category in a new window then users will return to the "index" when they close the page.

    Opening different sections of your site in new windows is never a good idea.

    I'm with Mark on this one. However, you are right about "Drilling Down" into categories on a site. Just leave a breadcrub trail for your visitors to get back to the index page.
