Where are you getting the idea that the theme only supports one menu? Does it say that somewhere? What theme is it? – Pippin Oct 11 '12 at 21:54
Hiro please take a moment to read the wordpress.stackexchange.com/faq , you have asked several questions that are localized to a theme shop and will be closed. – Wyck Oct 11 '12 at 21:56
Under Appearance->Menus->Theme Locations...per below this is WP related...let's not be so close happy. – user14432 Oct 11 '12 at 22:02

It means that the theme uses wp_nav_menu instead of ... wait for it ... wp_nav_menus

See http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_nav_menus for the function to use wp_nav_menus and be able to configure multiple menus under Dashboard>>Appearances>>Menus
