Fedora core becoming thin client

Dear Friends,
Anyone know how to compile fedora core to be used as a thin client / dumb terminal with a small kernel?

If you want to do this you would be much better off using something other than Fedora (Gento, slack, etc). Fedora is designed to be a full featured distro, as such it is going to be large. If one tries to slim down Fedora(significantly) you will have to change enough packages(and their dependencies) that you will no longer be able to use standard packages. Thus in the end you are not really running Fedora anyway. This is one of those times one needs to use the right tool for the right job. A drill is a very handy tool but it makes a terrible hammer.

I don't know about Fedora but Ubuntu offers ltsp to build a network of thin clients: This software runs on many distributions so it may be included in the Fedora repositories, too.
