install without GUI


I have Red Hat and I'd like to install on a machine, but without any desktop GUI, just the command-line interface. How can I do this?

when you install from the cd,and select the packages just don't select anything that has to do with a gui,like kde,gnome etc.I know one that causes a gui to get installed for some reason is printing support so disable that as well.

Thanks. Will this make the amount of space the install takes up less?
