Removing preinstalled applications in full install puppy


Precise Puppy 5.4
Full install to sda2 (hd0,1)

ok so i dont need alot of the things that come with puppy. as of right now i dont have the knowledge needed to build my own version. so i want to know how to remove the preinstalled applications from puppy.

this would include things like the games and the internet telephone thing

i have heard of something called pupbegone that i couldnt find

but in short i dont want to uninstall the applications that i installed, i want to uninstall the ones that came with the distro.

and i know i could go and delete the files myslef but i dont know enough about whats used for what to be comfortable doing this, so basically im asking if there is a utility that will do this for me. like i said i heard of pupbegone but couldnt find it

search and install mlocate pet version I posted. Use

Code:
updatedb
after .pet install to build location of files in a library.

Then

Code:
locate <name of game goes here>
It will list a list of files like so, (I am in AntiX right now)

Code:
$ locate gnome-ppp
/usr/bin/gnome-ppp
/usr/share/gnome-ppp
/usr/share/applications/gnome-ppp.desktop
/usr/share/doc/gnome-ppp
/usr/share/doc/gnome-ppp/AUTHORS
