Plus, who has time to do that to save a few gigs. I do a full install
and just use what I want. I instead disable services, that takes no
time, because in the end, you want free memory and cpu more than disk

Could you explain how you do this? I cant figure out how to install
OSes that are not directly supported by the installer. Been trying to
install Solaris x86 on the sunpci, for example. You could boot from
the network with some work, but where do you install?
