This truly has nothing to do with the news server.  As long as the
newsgroups are all named with dots separating the components, it should be
up to your newsreader.  (Are you using the tradspool storage method?  
Look in $pathspool/articles/ to see how INN is parsing the names.)

What newsreader are you using?  Are you sure it always shows groups in a 
tree (what if there are very few groups? perhaps it only makes a tree 
above a certain threshold)?
