unfortunately we do not support hierarchical categories at the moment. We recognize that this is a highly requested feature and have decided to implement it for Sitefinity 4.0 - the next major release.
I am sorry that I was not able to help you more at this moment. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
