do Ctrl-\, highlight the directory you want to move. Hit the [Move] button, and you will get a status line saying:

"Moving /dir/you/just/highlighted/to/move"

at the top of the Directory Hotlist pane.

Hit return, and the directory listing will be moved to *below* the hightlighted entry.

If you want to move a directory listing to the very top of the directory Hotlist, you will have to move the directory entry above it down. So it will take two moves to get the directory listing to the top, if it's not second from the top already.
