    Can I display 1 category only on the front page, and have users select which topic they want to view?

    Have you tried making http://www.domain.com/category/xyz your start page? There's a way of doing that - at least by adding a file to your theme directory...

    This wont work for my idea but good suggestion.

    I have my own layout that I am adding wordpress to. I want only my general stories to show up on the main page so my friends dont have to be drowned in my geeky posts which would be placed at /category/geek (for example).

    Is it possible to do this? If not, why not?

    There are MANY ways to do this. The easiest/simplest would be to use the Category Visibility plugin to control what categories are shown on the home page: http://ryowebsite.com/?p=46

    Most themes list categories in the sidebar or footer. Those can be used to see other areas of the blog.
