How to - Remove X from already

I have a server that was installed with X I was told to get X off the box. It is disabled but I have to remove X altogether. This is a fedora core 4 box. Is there a list of packages that I need to remove?

Can you use your package manager (i.e. YUM or apt4rpm or whatever) to completely remove x and all it's dependencies?

Sorry, I'm not a FC guy, but in Debian it would be a simple apt-get remove --purge x-window-system

Removing X

I could probably use yum but I do not know what to tell yum and I do not want to break anything. I was hoping someone has done this before...
