Backup your data before you start, and moreover backup the resulting 'bare 
bone' system. I found this to be very usefull as a base for bootable CD's

Also you could consider the package management hint:
I install all of my programs as a 'package user' so uninstalling is as easy as 
deleting all the files of that user. I use the following script for it:

# cat add_package_user
echo preparing $1

echo adding user...
useradd -g packages $1 || echo 'user already exists!' &&
echo making home directory...
mkdir /home/$1 || echo 'home directory already exists' &&
mkdir -p /home/$1/.distcc &&
echo 'localhost' > /home/$1/.distcc/hosts &&
chown  $1:packages /home/$1/.distcc/ &&
chown  $1:packages /home/$1/.distcc/hosts &&
chown  $1:packages /home/$1 &&
echo logging in...
su - $1

Hope you succeed,
The only dumb question is the one omitted

De enige domme vraag is degene die niet gesteld wordt
