A nice use of NodeXL can be found over at Development in a Blink where a great image of the related producer and products tainted by poisoned peanuts.

Nice! Could you please post the link to the item?  I couldn't find it on the blog, presumably because I was searching on the wrong keyword.

Here is the direct link to the tainted peanut network map:

New user.  I have not been able to generate this 3-level map with NodeXL.  How do I get to third level?

In NodeXL, you usually specify a graph by simply entering the graph's edge list into the Edges worksheet.  Each edge is specified by the two vertices it connects.  So if you have vertex A, which connects to three vertices, each of which connects to two additional vertices (that's nine edges total), the Edges worksheet would look like this:

Vertex 1  Vertex 2
A         A-1
A         A-2
A         A-3
A-1       A-1-1
A-1       A-1-2
A-2       A-2-1
A-2       A-2-2
A-3       A-3-1
A-3       A-3-2

If that doesn't answer your question, let me know.
