tree navigation

Hi there i have a tree structure navigation for a web site i am building, each page has an id, a parent_id and name. i am looking for a way given one name that i can get the tree to the root page.

a simple excample will help me explane better.

page table

id   |   parent_id      |    name
1               0                    home
2               0                    about
3               2                    site
4               2                    company
5               4                    location

so now if i had the name location i want to use a query that would return 4, 2, 0 which would represent the tree to that node

thanks in advance for any help
