open browsers without any dektop?

I am a new bie to linux and I am planning to install Redhat Linu9 on my machine with 1.7gb hard disk space. Is it possible for me to use browsers and other GUI programs without installing majority of the packages? I am planning not to install any desktop on such a low-space machine.

can anyone please clarify my doubt..?

The thing is you need the desktop like KDE or Gnome to run GUI applications. Yes you don't need majority of applications. Do a custom setup. You start at 500 MB and build from there. Just be sure to install KDE or Gnome (not both, they will just take space, I prefer KDE - more stability). And also be sure to install other GUI applications you will require according to your needs. You should do just fine with 1700MB. You can easily make a desktop computer with 1000MB with all you need in it.
