1. Edit the WebTemp.xml file in C:\Program Files\Common
Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\XML

2. Save a backup copy of this file

3. Change the attribute Hidden="FALSE" to Hidden="TRUE" for the site
definitions you want to hide

4. Run iisreset.exe

Set the Hidden=true in the webtemp.xml file that references the site
definition. The collection of Webtemp files can be found in the 12 hive
at Template/LCID{1033 for English}/XML/.
