minimal installation


Does anyone know how to do the most minimal installation in Redhat 7.3?

What are the bare minimum packages that I need to have a fully operational system? I consider a fully functional system to be one to which it is not difficult to add software.

I'm fairly new to linux and I want to start with a clean plate so that I can learn from the bottom up. It seems that most new distros just want to do all the work for you. But that's no way to learn.

I basically just want the operating system, and from there be able to create a system that I understand because I built it.

Thanks for you help.

Please Do not double or triple post, it leads to a lot of duplication of effort and wastes a lot of people's time.

This should probably all head to the post you made in Newbie.
