Yea, thats how I would think servers should be, start with minimum 
install and then add only whats needed.. It is still strange that SMP 
appears to be stable on minimally installed systems while workstations 
and desktops seem to hang..

Then there are people who have installed "everything" who say their 
systems are stable.. its definately weird..
