Can I uninstall drivers/language packs?

I just read that I can save 5.5 gigs of space by deleting printer drivers and language packs that I don't use. The problem is that I never saw such an option when I was installing Leopard. I left the room, and returned when I heard the welcome video playing. It must have gone to default after I didn;t select anything. Annoying.

Is it possible for me to delete these space hogs or do I have to do an install all over again?

when you're installing leopard there is a customize button right before installing where you could have choosen to not include those things.

The same thing happened to me. Does anyone know of any way to remove the extra language packs/drivers etc after the install?

the languages only take up a gig. its the printer drivers that are the real hogs. 3.5 gigs. they are in system>library>printers. You can try just uninstalling them. i'm sure it's safe, they are just drivers when i talked to epson they told me to delete them when i had problems. or you can do an A&I reinstall unchecking that stuff you missed the first time. it installs faster.
