You'd probably get better results using a Debian install than an RH one if
you're tight on space. Even the newest Debian install fits in 50MB or so for
a basic install with X et al (I'm currently using it on a v.old laptop).
This is without having to forego too much usability and without having to
delete packages you don't *really* need.
If you want an old RH copy, give me a shout, I think I can dig up a 4.1 or
4.2 from somewhere ...
