You just add that to the WHERE clause like this:

SELECT *
FROM Categories
WHERE ParentId = 0 AND CatId <> 126
ORDER BY CatName
0

mwvisa1 is correct, except you need to watch capitalization on the table name:

SELECT * FROM categories WHERE Parentid = 0 AND catid!=126 ORDER by catname
0

Depending on what database platform, the not equal may be != so the query would be:

CatId != 126.

If I am misunderstanding the exclude portion of the question you would just change this to be:

CatId = 126
