You can make the feature class a parameter and then make it optional.  Take a look at this resource for guidance.

Hi!!
Check this post (http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/2368-trying-to-set-some-parameters-as-optional-in-modelbuilder)

Apparently, in ArcGis 9.3, if the input is connected to a tool it cannot be declared as optional. Just disconnect it, set it as optional and then connect it again
