If you are referring to the Category and Tags boxes you need to call remove_meta_box. Look it up. 

function remove_default_categories_box() {
    remove_meta_box('categorydiv', 'post', 'side');
add_action( 'admin_head', 'remove_default_categories_box' );

Actually just found how to do this a week ago. Glad to share.
