Of course it's *possible*, just matter of removing the relevant rpm's from 
the system :)

"apt-get remove '.*gnome.*'" will do that quite effectively.. probably too
much so for practical purposes though. To get rid of just the desktop
stuff (and leave most libraries alone) "apt-get remove gnome-desktop" or a
slightly bigger remove set with "apt-get remove libgnome". Or if you're
not using apt, "yum remove ..." or a couple of iterations with 'rpm -e
`rpm -qa|grep gnome`' will get you there as well.
