I'd do it like this:

1. If you want to do X, select Deal A from the drop down list. The following
options appear:

[screen shot of portion of dialog box depicting new options, with enough of
the rest of the dialog box to give context]

2. give directions on using the options

3. If you want to do Y... (lather, rinse, repeat)

If the steps taken with the new options are lengthy, I might do it like
this:

1. To do X, skip to the section below entitled "Doing X." To do Y, skip to
the section below entitled "Doing Y."

Then I'd put those steps I showed you above in those sections.
