Categories with Custom Post Types

I used this impressive theme (version 3.5.3) to create a custom post type. I would like to be able to choose from the established post categories. I have checked all available options on the post type definition, but nothing has enabled the category list of checkboxes on the Add New ____ page.

I used a different plugin before called Cusotm Post Type UI, which provided a check box to associate the existing category taxonomy with the new custom post type.

Can you add this to your theme, or am I missing something?

Running WordPress 3.0 BTW.

I will have to look into it. In the meanwhile you should be able to use Custom Post Type UI plugin - it does pretty much the same thing in a slightly different way.

One would think so, but alas I have a completely different issue with the Custom Post Types UI plugin. So right now, I am in search of a third option.
