Yea, it's not what anyone really wants. Suggestions on what to remove are
most welcome. :)

all the kernel rpms are together around 100MB... ;)

kernel-source takes up the bulk of this, weighing in at 40MB. That's not going to get any smaller. The actual kernel images are around 16MB each, and there's only 4 of them. (i586/i586-smp/i686/i686-smp)

We're actually shipping *less* kernel RPMs than FC1.
- No Athlon build

YIKES, and what about all the users who have Athalons. Are you planning to force them to compile the kernel right off the bat?

- No 386 build
- No bigmem build
- No debug build (though this will change for the final FC2)

I'm not sure we can actually trim it any further without losing
functionality that some folks may want, or punishing low-end users.

We could lose the UP 586 build, and only ship the 586-smp kernel,
which should run fine, but at a slight performance loss.
Frankly, to save 16MB I don't think its worth it.
