[CentOS] How do I create a new menu category in GNOME ?

The title says it all. My GNOME desktop is in French, so here's what my
standard Applications (same word in french) menu looks like :
Applications > Accessoires (Utilities)
> Bureautique (Office)
> Graphisme (Graphics)
> Internet (Internet)
> Son et vidéo (Sound and Video)
Now I'm currently installing a medical application (Medintux) which
consists of several different "modules", e. g. programs where each one
does one thing. There are something like ten different modules, and I'd
like to create a new category in my main menu, so I have :
Applications > Medintux > User Management
> Scanner management
Something like that.
I'm already familiar with creating *.desktop files and putting them in
/usr/share/applications and running update-desktop-database. But I can't
seem to be able to create a new category. I found some probably related
files in /usr/share/desktop-directories and tried to edit my custom
medintux.directory file, but to no avail.
Anyone here familiar with the innards of GNOME desktop menus?
