you can 'unclick' every group in the installer or even easier is to
create a kickstart that just installs @base...

--- begin ks.cfg ---
# Install a fresh system rather than upgrade an existing system

# Perform the kickstart installation in text mode

# Sets the language to use during installation
lang en_US.UTF-8

# Sets the language(s) to install on the system
#langsupport en_US

# Sets system keyboard type
keyboard us

# auto mouse

# grub
bootloader --location mbr

# Reboot at the end

# Run Firstboot
firstboot --enable --reconfig

# Start in runlevel 5
#xconfig --startxonboot --defaultdesktop=KDE

# Sets up the authentication options for the system
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5

# Sets the system time zone
timezone America/Phoenix

# Configures network information for the system
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp

# Sets the system's root password to "whatever"
rootpw password

# Specifies how the GRUB boot loader should be installed
bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda --append="rhgb quiet"

# Removes partitions from the system, prior to creation of new
clearpart --all --initlabel
part swap --recommended
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size 100
part /     --fstype ext3 --size 1024 --grow

# Package Selection
%packages --resolvedeps --ignoremissing
# personally, I would probably add these...

# Post-installation Script
# import RPM key(s)
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
#rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
--- end ks.cfg ---

adjust as necessary
