Possible to hide a Lead Conversion checkbox?

I'd like to hide the checkbox & wording for "Do not create a new opportunity upon conversion." Is this possible? Maybe with a custom lead convert button & associated javascript or S control?

As the Lead conversion page is not a page one can customize you will need to use Apex to do the Lead conversion, see p.178 http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/salesforce_apex_language_reference.pdf and create a button that uses the Apex Lead conversion. Then you can override the existing Convert button with you new Custom Convert button that uses the Apex to do the conversion thus bypassing the standard converion process. 

 

Wish I could help you out with the code but not an much of a coder. Sorry.

Are you desiring that an Opportunity is created automatically upon Lead conversion, thus removing the ability for a User to bypass the Opportunity creation?

Yes that is exactly what I would like to do.
