how can I remove Xwindows?

hello everyone

I want to remove XWindows from my system to have more space.

I have tried to use yum, but it doesn't work.

If use "rpm -e" to remove XFree86, there are too many packets depandent. I don't think it's a good way.

Could anyone give me some tips on remove XWindow?

Thx in advance!

what distrobution are you using... from your info it says Reahat... if you are using RedHat and still want to remove X, then my question to is, why use red hat. Im not sure if removing X from redhat is a good idea as it is a gui based system.. but i could be wrong.
