Well i can of course but then it won't be well organized. Actually i have figured a way to solve my problem i will be putting the rest of the files in a folder say "other" and so i will be having only sub directories..
If i have a parent directory by the name "Softwares" then it could be having several sub directories say antiviruses, media players, and other than such directories there could be some files..
so i am planning to put all such files in a folder called "misc" and so i will now be left with a parent directory "softwares" which contains only directories..i will do this recursively and in this way i will be having only directories to deal with and the data will be well organized..
Then i will create sub-communities for every sub-directory i have... and finally for the directories which contain only files i will make collection in place of them..thus maintaining the hierarchy of the directory structure...
Check out this problem i have posted..  http://mailman.mit.edu/pipermail/dspace-general/2008-November/002373.html
May be you could help me with this one..

Quick question. Why do you need to store files in sub-directories before import?
Can you pool all of them in one dir?
