The Menu plugin from pigstye.net is a good general purpose, configurable menu for Geeklog. It supports expandable/collapsible items, and doesn't use the little plus and minus signs that I personally find difficult to hit reliably. This is the plugin I use for this website and the family website (link at left).

Unfortunately, out of the box it doesn't work with PHP versions 4.3.9-3 and later. This article will show the changes necessary to make it work, and provide some configuration tips.
