Minimal installation

Hi all!

I'm planning to install a minimal version of fedora and then manually
(perhaps using apt to handle dependencies) remove some packages that I don't
need. The key here is the disk usage.

I want my install to be as small as:

basic file utilities (ls, cat)
rpm + apt

Of course I would need all rpms that are dependent on these + anything
required for fedora to work.

My question is: has anyone tried it? How low can you go in terms of disk
space used?
