Is this a case for recommending the AOS spin, and then adding
packages from there ?
The AOS (The Appliance Operating System) is a scaled down version of
with a small footprint containing only the packages necessary to run
System Admin - Silver Oaks Communications

I use a 500 MHz 4GB HDD system to run Fedora 11.
I want to use it as a router, web server and php, c++, mysql development environment, console only. I do not need printers, graphics, electronics design, dial-up support on it. I use vim, ssh, samba, iptables, NetworkManager for initial config. I would stop using mail server. These are the groups currently installed:
Authoring and Publishing
Dial-up Networking Support
Server Configuration Tools
Windows File Server
The problem is that they eat up 90% of my only working partition, that is, almost 3GB. Can you please suggest a way I can free a few hundreds of MB on HDD? The problem is that, every time I try to remove the most useless group, I lose basic functionality, like NetworkManger or samba client. I hope that maybe you could suggest a solution to render my system usable for the next months, updates and some reasonably small c++ programming included.
Thank you in advance.
