I TOTALLY do not get your point.
If you want the advanced Disk Druid features to work with LVM
partitions, it seems you need the GUI version. That is pretty much the
driver for me in many of my installs.
I SUPPOSE I can start playing with kickstart to either create the
partitions as I want (tried that some years ago and always messed up
something), or play with kickstart so it will start X11 even though
there is on 480Mb of memory.
For servers, after the install, I set inittab to 3 and if I need a GUI
to manage the server, I use VNC over SSH so I like to have gnome there
for the couple times a year I use it (via VNC).
And my desktops that run FC or Centos have NO games on them. These are
work systems. Even the family computers (XP or FC) do not have any
games. If the kids want games they go over to their friends and play
outside or with game boards where they have real interaction.
