Mr. Zartman,

I am starting with a RH7.3 machine.  I have gotten it down to most bare 
essentials, however, I am new to Linux and don't know enough to keep it 
all at the command line (yet - working on it).  Do you have any 
recommendations for what I can take off, or what Linux OS would be 
better to start with then RH7.3?  I appreciate your time and help.
