See the end of the Type11 instructions thread for tips on slimming your install.

Thank you guys so much, I did not do a custom install, so I do have all of that stuff. That's must be it.
Should I do a blank reinstall or is there a way I can remove all of that without reinstalling?
Thanks again! Very helpful!

i suppose it depends on how much time you have spent configuring everything so that it is just so. the great thing with our EFI partition for our hack is that it does not get deleted when you choose erase and install from the leopard install disc. so after the erase and install it will boot right up (should) and then you can run the miniscript again and you will be all set.
if you have spent a lot of time setting things up you can search the web for how to manually trim down os x. there are even a couple of articles linked from these forums. but trimming osx is not specific to our machines so any regular mac tutorial will work.
