Description of problem:
Whn I installed RH 8.0 on my computer I selected only Gnome and not KDE. Later
on I decided to tyr KDE and so I installed it using redhat-config-packages.
After trying it I wanted to remove it, but here was no check mark any more for
the KDE packages. There is no check mark for X Window System, Gnome and Printing
Support. How can I uninstall any of these?
