Home page without blog listings

Is it possible for the default.aspx to just show a welcome type main home page? If I take out the uc1:PostList, I can put the usual HTML but then working with the categories hotlinks they go back to the default page and don't show the blog category.

Is it better to keep the blog engine in a sub Blog folder, rather than make it the top web site?

Thanks,

Either the blog could be in a subfolder, like you suggest.  Or you could create an initial landing page named something like index.html or index.aspx, and in IIS make sure that index.html or index.aspx comes before default.aspx in the Default Documents.  A 3rd possibility is to create a BE Page (in the control panel) and check the box for "Is Front Page".  This Page would then replace the normal BE homepage.

Thanks - should have looked a little deeper on the Is Front Page.
