Gnome Packages on Solaris 10 u6

If my system is supposed to be a pure oracle database server can i remove all the GNOME packages from the system ? Currently system is installed with Everything+OEM and i want the image to be as small as possible remove the unnecessary softwares from it so that its a master image for other servers. Rt now i can see 250 gnome packages and let me know other potential canditates for removal from the server.

Why don't you try installing minimal Software Cluster? Like Reduced Networking or Core. Then add to that system software you need.

The problem is that i 'm creating a master image and wants the image to be as small as possible. So i was thinking of installing SUNWCXall+ OEM support and remove the unwanted packages and then create a flar of that image.
So i just wanted to know which are the generall packages not required for db & web servers
