You can put them here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your account name>\Start Menu\Programs

If you're not the only user of the PC and don't mind sharing you can put
them here:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs

Right-click the start button and select Open (or Open All Users). This will
open your personal start menu (or all user's start menu) in Windows Explorer
where you can create and modify sub-folders to your heart's content.
