You can strip out unwanted packages by choosing the "choose individual
packages" option when picking software packages to install.
if you miss any needed packages RedHat will issue a screen labeled
"unfullfilled dependancies" or some other such nonsense.
You after manually striping RedHat you "should" have a running system.

BTW my wife used to grumble about exactly that uh before she
left that is.....8^P
Have hope, mornings almost here:)

The more I use Linux, the harder Windows becomes to use. Point and click
software is too restrictive and difficult to do anything productive
