I made a Custom Navigation Bar in Adobe Macromedia Fireworks. For the main categories they are Gif then when you hover over the main category it drops down all of the html sub categories. The Gif files go to the Main category web pages as well, but my question is are these search engine friendly will Google be able to crawl through this? Thank You

As far as I understand your navigation, it is a standard drop-down menu using images as triggers (which also link to pages). The submenus, I assume, are standard text ones.

Unless you have done something funky with the links, the search engines will have no problem in following this type of menu (although the use of image links is perhaps not optimal).

Since this is the css forum, you might want to have a look at the various posts in here which talk about using css to replace image links and its use in drop-down menus...
