Removing Languages for KDE

Hi, I'm running fedora core 3, and when i installed it, i chose all packages. it had about 30 packages that were nothing but languages for kde. i can set kde in NORWEGIAN if i wanted to. the probelm is, these packages are huge, and i dont want them. how can i get rid of them, as they do not show up in the add/remove packages, and there is no remove in the kde control panel. can anyone help me?

If you run
rpm -qa|grep 'kde-i18n'
you'll get all KDE language packages. Their names are kde-i18n-LANG-version, where LANG is language code, usually two letters. You can remove unwanted ones (but you need to be root, so run a terminal and type su, then provide rooot password when asked) using
rpm -e kde-i18n-LANG
