Easily uninstall software that came with Slack8.1?

Is there an easy way to uninstall programs that got installed with a Full Install for Slack, such as Galeon or Netscape, or Abi or Emacs? I chose full install just becaue it was the quickest to set up, but now that I have my system up and running, I hope to try putting Openoffice on, since I find it better than AbiWord and the like.

You can remove packages with pkgtools. Just do...

removepkg package-name.tgz

You can see what packages are installed in /var/log/packages.
