I wrote a little plugin to exclude categories from standard WP  
functions like is_feed, is_front, is_search, etc.

If you don't want to use the plugin you can setup a simple function in  
your theme's functions.php file

// Used to limit the categories displayed in the Feed.
function myHomePostsFilter($query)
	if ($query->is_feed)
	$query->set('cat','-1'); // where -1 is the cat ID you want to  
exclude. Also you can put multiple IDs in this second parameter. You  
must include the '-' to negate the cat ID.
	return $query;
