On the category administration page there is a position field defaulted to 0. What doe the position of a category mean?How would one create a sub-category in light of the fact that only one category may be active for a product?

Each number represents the position of each category in that level, low to high.Child categories will operate in the same way...numbers low to high

Thanks johnbol1. Position is menu order? I notice names don't have to be unique but I guess a unique id is generated. Positions should be entered as desired?

Looks like it is menu order. What was confusing me is when you assign multiple categories to a product you have radio buttons to pick one category out of whichever categories have been assigned.

The Radio Button determines the main category. And yes names should really be unique, as otherwise if using the seo addon CS appends the end of the category name with the language like;
