You can set up the WSUS groups through a Group policy
"Enable Client-side Targeting
This policy enables client computers to self-populate computer groups that exist on the WSUS server."

You can create the GPO and filter it out with a security group, then add the computers to that security group.

Just checking, are you using WSUS 3.0?

After creating whatever groups you need in the console, you can add the unassigned computers to a group via the right-click menu.
