removing unwanted apps

I've just installed Fedora Core 3. This is my first time using linux, so I chose a lot of packages in my installation, just to be safe
Now I'd like to clean up my system a bit, and remove the apps I didn't like. I have a fair idea as to how to uninstall them, but I'm not sure if I dare. As I understand there are a lot of dependencies from program to program, so how can I be sure I won't wreck the whole thing?

Any hints on this is greatly appreciated, as well as pointer to good pages on this.

Dependencies are automatically dealt with by RPM or any graphical front-end you might use.

They will also be spotted by yum if you do mess something up, so you can fix things later if something happens.
