Perhaps you could tell us what window manager you are using and what purposes the machines serves. There may be other services which can be disabled as well. Post the output of:
ps -aux

I would be pretty surprised if it does have gnome kde, fluxbox, xfce or blackbox stamped all over it. If you post the output of "ps -aux" we can probably tell.
