How do you name a family of fonts?

Adobe sells large sets of OTF files containing multiple font weights, widths and styles. When you install these fonts they appear under one menu name, e.g., Caslon, and the family members appear on a sub menu in InDesign, or in the case of Mac OS X TextEdit, the Font Panel groups them under one family and lists the various faces in the TypeFace column.

How do you name a set of fonts to get this to happen?
