If I wanted to delete garageband, can I reinstall it at a later time, or do I have to reinstall ALL of OSX?

I don't need it now, but i might want it later when I go and travel. Is there any way to delete it for the time being, but reinstall it when I need it?

Thanks

Yes you can, you can later re-install it with your restore discs.

FYI, GarageBand itself doesn't take up a lot of room but the audio loops located at:
/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/ ~2.5 GB
or /Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Apple Loops

Yeah I'm curious about this too how do I completely delete all of grageband and its content from my mac? Do I have to delete garageband then go into the library section and get rid of all that stuff too?

So drag garageband to the trash then delete the apple loops folder and apple loops index and that should get rid of all of garageband right???? No other hidden files in other folders????? And the apple loops and apple loops index folders do they have stuff for other programs or just specifically for garageband?? Thanks
