I need to use a drop down menu for about 200 links. I found the following script I can use:

<form name="guideform" id="guideform" action="#">
<select name="guidelinks" id="guidelinks" onChange="window.location=document.guideform.guidelinks.options[document.guideform.guidelinks.selectedIndex].value">
<option selected value="#">Choose twon</option>
<option value="index.html">Page1</option>
<option value="http://place.com/page2.htm">Page2</option>

My question is: if I include 200 menu options/links isn't it too many? I know Google recommends no more than 100 links per page. Do these links count as regular links in the eyes of Google or other SEs?
