The LiveCD is fairly basic, yes, but it still installs ~1.5G if I
remember correctly. It has a lot of packages that are not always
necessary, like gimp and multimedia packages.

I wanted to set up a fileserver (the hardware doesn't even have a normal
video output, only a header on the motherboard) and had to remove a
bunch of packages to trim the fat.

I know there's a spin of Fedora for appliances -- that one definitely
sounds and looks minimal -- but it's not a bootable/installable CD.
