    I learned the hard way that you'll need AT LEAST "a", "ap" and "l" packages to get things moving. You can then delete what you don't want using "pkgtool", but those 3 have some very important items. Then, since all you want is networking, install what you want from the "n" packages. That's pretty much what I did, but I also got X ("x" and "xap" some packages). After it was all said and done, I have only 500MB of disk space used and only get up to 150MB of RAM usage.

    the packages for a minimum install are in fact
    some of the a, ap, l, and n (networking)
    i have a whitepaper on this on my website
    with the tagfile configuration for this type of instalation

    mail me if you still want that

    the instalation is about 370MB
