Using mcDropDown in my header?

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

In working on my site, I have one set of categories which is quite large and therefore requires the use of a unique style of drop down menus. The one which is most aesthetically pleasing to me is mcdropdown, but I have no idea on how to implement it. I understand and read through how you enter the data for which you'd like it to sort, but I don't understand how you initialize the script itself and how you would work that into your code. Do I put this into my default.master.tpl file under my navmenu?

I'm somewhat lost on how exactly to work this.

    With 422's suggestions, I managed to manipulate a "blank" theme almost entirely in CSS and get most of the features on my site working. One of the remaining elements is still coming up with a menu. I had originally written one using CSS/HTML but because of the nature of it (I'm sorting by state and then university; a typical drop down menu gets clumsy and ugly; the mcdropdown plugin helps to keep things fairly concise from what I've seen) I need to use javascript and jquery. I installed jquery and am trying to follow, essentially, the exact example from the website, but to no avail.

    I'm not sure on how to incorporate it into my corresponding menu on my site (in my case "nav"). To be honest, I'm not even sure if I'm initializing the scripts correctly. Any guidance towards how to properly set this up would be very much appreciated.
