Please, pretty please... could you read through the "Bare-Bones Server
HOWTO" on Simpaticus.com  and give me your feedback on the package
As I've noted recently, I am trying to create a comps.xml file for FC4
that will substantially reduce the Minimal install and eliminate all of
these packages. I can use all the help I can get! Overall I've managed
to eliminate nearly 120 packages from FC3's minimal install, which means
almost 200MB of space recovered.
But there may be things I missed, and there may be more ways to improve,
and besides, I still don't really understand the comps.xml file all that
