removing Xwindow from fedora 5


Is this possible or do I have to reinstall my whole linux box?
I don't really feel the need to run X since I like to type :-)

just run: yum groupremove "X Window System". never done it myself but i'm sure that would work. you may have other groups that will also get removed with it, e.g. Graphical Internet, GNOME Desktop etc... you can see what groups are installed with "yum grouplist"
