you can stop the unnecessary services, in Slack it's just going to /etc/rc.d and make the script non executable , like for example nfs (wish is not used by you unless you make a linux network share ) chmod -x rc.nfs
ssh also can be stopped if not used and many others .... .
I'll speak about Slack , Slack comes by default with the huge kernel the kernel is a bit big because it's compiled in almost all the linux kernel modules and the kernel is responsible of loading them if needed , so it's a good idea to use a generic one, but you have to know wish modules to load during boot process, and load them using initrd .
in Slack this can be done using the following .
mkinitrf -c -k 126.96.36.199 -m reiserfs:vesafb:intelfb
please replace the version with the desired kernel version , vesafb , intelfb are not more than example , in slack to boot your machine you need a module for your filesystem other wise you'll be in a kernel panic .
Hope this helps.
