I'm trying to figure out which makes the most semantic sense for a
Table of Contents.
Here is a sample of the ToC (each line is a link to a document):
Windows Operating System
Using Your Computer
Logging In with Your Domain Account
Maintaining Your Roaming Profile
Dangers of Running as an Administrator
Running Individual Programs as an Administrator
Group Administrative Account Policy
Problems with Saving Your Data on a Hard Drive
Is this best achieved (most semantically appropriate) with nested
unordered lists, nested definition lists, or something else?

I don't think the subheads are really definitions of the main heads.
IMHO it makes the most semantic sense with nested ordered lists. But
those come with numbers; if the numbers are unwanted I'd use nested
unordered lists even though the order does matter. (But then, I think
"ordered" and "unordered" lists are really badly named. Order is
significant in many unordered ["bulleted"] lists.) The CSS would then
handle the formatting.
