Asked all the time, quick search would have told you to edit your /etc/inittab file and change your default runlevel from 5 to 3.

Running a server, yah, not a good idea to even install X on it...

You would gain some hard drive space from uninstalling, thats about it.

Why not just not run it until you need it, you lose nothing in having it installed but not running.

If you aren't using it already, check out Midnight Commander (mc) as a file manager. Pilot (Pine, Pico, Pilot) is not bad either.
Choose an editor you like, Pico, Nano, Joe.
When installing server software, you want to install only what you need and want. Everything else is overhead and possible soft spots for hackers.
