Easy killer, I am documenting what I choose to install versus not, it's hardly random. Two installs done one with my stuff checked and a #yum install xen (noted what was added) and another done without making any changes to the default install, then running #yum install xen (noted what was installed, it was the same) produced different results.

Exactly, I don't want sendmail and VoIP clients etc. I am assuming if I choose to manage all the guests manually I don't need a gui.
