These can all tell you more:
rpm -qa | sort > installed_rpms
then edit that file ... this is everything installed on you machine.
You can also look at the file named: /root/install.log (that is what is
installed by anaconda).
Just for the record, the absolutely minimal install you can do in
centos-5 from the installer (if not using a special kickstart file) has
169 RPM packages and is 670MB (and this install has no real gui software
at all) ... my current workstation has 921 RPM packages installed, and
there are 2458 RPM packages in the Base CentOS-5 OS repository.
