Do you mean the links listed under 'favourite links' - if so, just drag and drop a folder you want to appear and right click >> 'remove link' those that you don't.

Added, sorry this is for Vista, which I assumed for some unknown reason (probably because that's what I'm using to write this!).

Vista [support.microsoft.com] is great for this.
In XP the easiest way I remember to tweak the Places Bar was via the TweakUI tools. Other than that you have to look at Registry hacks for programs outside the Office family [support.microsoft.com].

I haven't tried this but...

Open the registry editor and navigate to the following key.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ComDlg32\PlacesBar
If it doesn't exist, create it.
If if does exist, rename it and create a new one (that way you can easily revert to old settings).

Create a value named Place0
This value should be a string or a DWORD
Use a string for personal directories.
Use a DWORD for system directories. This must be a CSIDL value as listed in the link below.
Repeat for Place1, Place2, etc.

It seems this can also be set via group policy editor:

Start >> run >> gpedit.msc

Navigate to User Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Windows Explorer >> Common Open File Dialog

You can then set places to appear by enabling and editing the settings for "Items displayed in the places bar".

I imagine this won't work in XP home.
