iPhoto & iMovie are not part of Tiger, they are from the iLife suite so won't be loaded if you reinstall OS X.
If you reinstall from the disks that came with your computer, then you will have to check the options and uncheck each application you don't want. It's possible to not install printer drivers, languages, or any of iLife.
Generally, you don't need an app manager as most applications put their files in the applcations folder and in application support in the library. Look and delete the stuff there and you should be good.
yes depending on how much stuff you have on the comp you can stick in the cd, use a custom install, and than dont check imovie and iphoto.
Ohterwise app zapper will do that trick, though maybe not as well.
I think the button to click was called "Customize". You should see it near the bottom on the left when you go to install.
Unless you want to reinstall for some reason just throw out the programs, and printer drivers you don't want. You can use Service Scrubber to get rid of services you don't need and Monolingual to remove extraneous languages (do not remove architectures). What don't you like about App Zapper?
LOL. Some people are doing way too much texting.
Another vote for throwing away applications you don't need. Reinstalls are for new hard drives, not deleting applications. This is OSX we're talking about, not Windows.
Yup. Just doing the soft delete of apps and drivers will be enough, as the other stuff doesn't really slow Tiger down at all.
Now getting rid of Spotlight, however, would be nice...
