Fedora 14 Base Install is installing extra package groups?

When I'm running, I like to just do a base install to start, so that, I can go from there, only added things that I need. I just did a Base install of Fedora 14 x86_64, selecting only the "Base" package, and "vim-enhanced".

But, when running a grouplist, it comes back with this...

[root@fcdesktop01 ~]# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process
Installed Groups:
   Dial-up Networking Support
   Hardware Support
   Input Methods
   Mail Server
   Network Servers
   System Tools
I don't see why these extra groups are included, when all I asked for was Base and vim?

Is it safe to delete these?

Please try installing with this mode "linux text". This is a text mode install which will only the basic OS without any of these packages. With regards to your query, yes you can safely uninstall all of these if you do not require them.
