Can you provide some more info about what are you trying to achieve? And also include SP version in your question (don't use tag). – Vedran Rasol Sep 22 '11 at 12:38
You can create custom field for document library, but what do you mean by wizard in library creation??? – Strider Sep 23 '11 at 5:56
@Paddy please only use answer if you really have a good answer. For clarification use comments – Anders Rask Sep 23 '11 at 18:52

There may be some valid cases where you need to offer a different experience when provisioning document libraries or sites. If the out of the box process doesn't meet your needs, especially for a specific business case, you can always write a custom feature that can look and behave exactly the way you would like it to.

Here is the MSDN reference for the SPListCollection.Add() method.
