Hiding SharePoint Site Templates & Adding new categories!

A colleague asked me about removing some of the templates/site definitions that are available when creating SharePoint sites. Actually It’s so simple.
To hide a template from users :

1) Open the Webtemp.xml file located in the the 12 hive /template/1033/XML folder.
2) Change the Hidden parameter of the template(s) you want to hide.

Note also that you can create your own categories by editing the DisplayCategory value
