What do you want to remove? GNOME/KDE ?

As I understood he wants to remove X Window System and all GUI programs, including GNOME.

Cleanest solution would be to use netinst. That way you will have a minimal system I'm guessing?

hm, I've never used a rh-based distro, but this leads me to believe "yum remove" automatically purges all config files?

After you're done removing any DE's and Xorg, check out /usr/share/doc/rpm-.*/GROUPS as it lists the groups you can query the RPMDB by. This means that by running 'rpm -qg 'User Interface/Desktops'; rpm -qg 'User Interface/X'; rpm -qg 'User Interface/X Hardware Support';' you can easily check if there is any Xorg residue. Likewise 'yum grouplist' will list groups Yum recognizes, meaning 'yum groupremove 'X Window System';' does the same.
