If you know how to use aptitude I'd recommend using it and going all the
way down to tasks. Under tasks you will find one for x-windows or
x-server. It might be in the servers group. Note then when you remove x
related stuff, you will get a warning about emacs being broken if you
emacs. Don't worry about that one, remove emacs and install the package
emacs-nox. That saved a lot of space on my 800MB, no that's not a
miss-print hd.BTW, you mention your p2 is to slow for gnome, how fast is
it? I have a p2-400 I'd like to linuxify.
PS. if your more comfortable with tasksel, use that instead of aptitude.

Subject: Debian Uninstall Question
Is there a way to remove a related group of applications with apt? Or do
you have to take them out one at a time and do it in the right order
because of the dependencies?
I ask because I have an old Pentium 2 with a fairly small hd, and I need
to take out all the X (except perhaps the Xlibs). The hd is getting full
and this box is too slow for Gnome anyway.
