I have not been able to find how to do this in 2010 but I need to find a way to display multi levels within my top level navigation that is shared across all my sites.  For example:

Right now I have multiple sites:

Topsite
    sub site 1
    sub site 2
          sub sub site 1
          sub sub site 2
                    sub sub sub site 1


the default is that the top menu will only show "sub site 1" and "sub site 2" but will not go any further than that.... I need to be able to show at least down to the "sub sub site" if possible even the 3rd/4th level.  


In addition is there a way to add that same navigation to the Quick launch area in a way that is expands and contracts depending on what the user selects, similar to tree view but only for the current site navigation items.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

you'll need a copy of SharePoint Designer 2010, and the Publishing Feature enabled on your MOSS site.. (You do have MOSS and not just WSS, right?)

To use Dynamic menus (dropdowns and flyouts) in SharePoint 2010 requires the same steps as in MOSS 2007.  For it to work correctly you normall need 3 things:

1) Publishing Infrastructure and Publishing features must be enabled for the site collection and top level site respectively.

2) Once Publishing is turned on you will see a Navigation link on the site settings page. (This only shows up if Publishing is turned on for both 2007 and 2010).  Use the Navigation link on each site and subsite to enable Show Sites checkbox.  This has to be done for each level you want to show up in the dynamic navigation.  for example if you set it to 3 you need to do this on the top level site, each child site, and each grandchild site.  Otherwise you won't have 3 levels to show.  You need to do enough levels to cover static + dynamic.

3) Edit the master page in the top level master page gallery to change the DynamicDisplayLevels of the top nav's ASPmenu control.  The default master for a 2010 clean installation is V4.master.  Open SPD2010, go to the root pages _catalogs\MasterPages\v4.master, look for DynamicDisplayLevels
