uninstall X


I have a webserver running Fedora Core 3. This box is on my network with no monitor or keyboard, so I don't need X on it. I only connect to it with Putty. I could, however, use the extra disk space. Does anyone know how to uninstall X windows on a FC3 box?
Thanks,
Tony

Look into yum:
Code:
man yum
I don't use Fedora, but something like this might work. You should search for packages concerning X, and then remove them.
Code:
yum remove x-window-system gnome
