I'm putting together a machine that will be used solely as a server for an intranet. I do not want X-windows to be installed.

Before I go too much further in the installation steps (I'm at 'Install Type' right now), I want to see what I need to do to avoid having X windows installed (note, I do want the capability of compiling on this machine). Thanks!

I believe if you go with the server installation like what Redhat has during install, it shouldn't install X and I think most other won't as well.

i know in red hat 7 there is an option whether to install a gui(kde/gnome) or not. You just un-select them and it should work.
