I am new to Red Hat Linux. Recently I update my Red Hat Linux 8 Professional & I selected "all" without reading the content. Later I discovered that I downloaded all the foreign languages support for KDE that I don't need. These files are taking a lot of space in my HD as I have both Linux & Win XP in my PC.

So could someone tell me how to delete all these unwanted files?

i've always done it by hand, like
find . -name "*spanish*" -print and going to all the
directories that are there and deleting all the crap.
