Default Customize Bootable USB flash drive? - 06-19-2010, 01:40 AM

After several times reinstalling os x on my mini 10v (due to triple booting headaches) i've decided i want to just keep the install on hand in that flash drive.

Also, because of the frequent installs, it would be nice to have all my apps and updates on hand on the same flash drive. After removing the Optional Installs folder, I had enough room to put the 10.6.3 update in there, but still not enough room to put all of my updates and installs on there (biggest one being XCode+iPhone sdk).

So my question is, is there a way to remove the optional installs that are used during the installation process? I want to remove the printer drivers, languages, etc (everything but X11) from the disk completely to save some space. I'm sure this is possible but does anyone know how to do it?
