I just did Paul's:

> bloat.txt

and it wasn't hard to figure out how to add up all the disk space. The
biggest packages are:
449899240 openoffice.org-i18n-1.1.4-0.2.kde
155003743 openoffice.org-1.1.4-0.4.3.kde
122472528 openoffice.org-libs-1.1.4-0.4.3.kde
98835391 AdobeReader_enu-7.0.0-1
79886968 Omni-0.9.2-1.1
59179686 j2re-1.4.2-11.1.fc3.rf
56605520 emacs-common-21.3-21.FC3
54976367 wine-20041201-1fc3winehq
50344454 glibc-common-2.3.5-0.fc3.1

but the total came out to almost 4 gigs! Thats for 941 packages! What
can I remove? Obviously I don't want to remove OpenOffice or Adobe
Reader. I suppose that I could do without j2re, and I don't exactly
remember what Omni is.

I put the list up at http://dotancohen.com/bloat.txt if anyone cares
to take a look and advise me. Things like glibc-common have no meaning
to me whatsoever, but googleing around led me to believe that lots of
things will break if I remove it.

I would wait and install FC4, but we need this computer daily. Thanks friends.
