    Best way to clean up and strip down a redhat workstation?


    I am needing to create a stripped down, clean image of a redhat workstation install. I only really need to run vmware workstation, firefox, iscsi client software and network connectivity.

    Any ideas, tutorials, suggestions, etc on how I can clean up the size, boot time, and most importantly amount of used RAM?

    The best way that I can think of would be to do a clean install, while making sure to select only packages that you'll need. Then use yum to remove any extra bulk. After that, use CloneZilla to make images as needed for further installs.
