Yes, I've tried it but unfortunately many unwanted packages like
"wireless" will be installed with this option.
Thanks for that link, I will check it out.

 Dear JB

> The first hit

I googled it before many times but all links (including the above one)
are talking about a Minimal Fedora which has near 200 packages (As is
described before this amount of packages is very much for me)

Dear Chris

Yeah, you are right about that minimal install, but with that option
exactly 180 packages will be installed! but I'm sure that near hundred
of them is not required packages.

Sincerely yours,
