Knoppix Hdd installation -I want to reduce the size on Disk!!

Hi everybody;
I installed a knoppix on my HDD.It is aprx. 2 GB but i want to reduce this size as small as I can.I just want to use Mozilla for web browser and a just a plug-in for mozilla thats all.Do have any idea whisch programs that I can remove?
And moreover how much space does the Knoppix Kernel takes on Hdd.

Thanks for your Consideration
