What should the default cron job listing (crontab -l) be for the root user
in Redhat 6.2? I think I overwrote the default list.

I guess that this would apply to any RH setup but my question is about
setting up RH to be lean and clean. I'm running 6.2 on an older P133 laptop,
with 80 megs RAM and a 13gig HD. I've got it all setup, and everything is
running OK but I know that there are a lot of things installed on the
default setup that I don't need and will never use but I'm not entirely sure
of what they are. Do I really need all of those email clients, or text
editors? Of course not and they are just sitting there taking up space on my
HD. Some things are obvious but I don't have a clue about others and it's
kind of frustrating. I feel like these companies (RH, SUSE, etc.) are taking
advantage of the fact that I, as a newbie, don't know how to avoid the
bloated default installs that they want to push at me much like Microsoft
does with default Windows installs. I take great pleasure in running amuck
uninstalling bloat in Windows but I don't know what to uninstall on Linux.
Is there a site that covers this and discuss' what a newbie can do to clean
up his system? Or is there a Linux package that doesn't overwhelm the new
user with a ton of unneeded packages on the default install?
