This isn't quite the same as telling it what it can not connect to, but it may suffice.
Just use System Preferences -> Network -> AirPort -> Preferred Networks and use the options there to limit access to known networks.Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 25, 2008 8:23 AM (in response to Camelot)I'm having a similiar problem. The suggestion you gave looks promising, but it also looks like it is specific to Leopard. What is the procedure for those of us still using Tiger?iMac 17 Flat Panel 1.6 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

It should be pretty much the same:
System Preferences -> Network -> Airport -> Airport tab -> By default, join: ...iMac G5 20" 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11), HK Soundsticks
Currently Being ModeratedDec 26, 2008 11:27 PM (in response to Camelot)Thank you for your suggestion. While I followed the procedure suggested by you, my computer still logs into my neighbor's network whenever it cannot locate my airport station right away.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.7)

Did you remove your neighbours network from the preferred list? You may also want to amend the options in that Airport tab to stop it from automatically adding new networks as preferred.iMac G5 20" 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11), HK Soundsticks
