Want to change my category functionality/display (3 posts)

    All,

    I want to change the appearence and functionality of my category list as it appears in my page (http://www.cafegeek.com/home/wp-admin/post.php).

    I would like my default category to always be selected (but invisible) and to allow users to only select the sub-catgeory from a simple drop down list.

    Here's a pic for reference:

    What I would like to achieve is in the raised area on the image.

    I'm a bit of a PHP/Wordpress gumby, but it seems that that solution is for displaying teh data of categories that have content, rather than allowing users to select a category for their new post?
