Question Small Slackware Install

I'm trying to install Slackware to a small hard disk with only 1094MB not including the 128MB swap partition. All I really need is the X Windows System with Fluxbox, The compilers and other packages I need to compile the kernel for my WinModem, the basic command line tools and the man pages if they fit. As you can see I'm kind of new to Slackware. I switched from Mandrake because it had so much bloatware and it ran to slow on my machine. Can anyone please tell me which packages I need to install?
