Sounds like you are looking for the functionality of WordPress 3.0 Menus Subpanel. In Dashboard go to 'Appearance' then 'Menus' and you can create a page that will show the posts from a specified category.

WordPress by default creates category archive that lists all of the category's posts, but if you want to do that in a page then take a look at List category posts plugin

which allows you to list posts from a category into a post/page using the [catlist] shortcode. This shortcode accepts a category name or id, the order in which you want the posts to display, and the number of posts to display. You can use [catlist] as many times as needed with different arguments.
