How to clear userland?

Is there a nice tidy way to clear my userland - CLEAN without
jeopardizing or reloading the OS?
My 4.11 box is still stable - it started life as a webserver (my first
learning experience with Unix), then added printserver and was still
pretty light in "junk". Recently however, I decided to add a mail
server - what with naivety and inexperience and looking at anti-spam and
uncle virus etc I think I clogged up my HD with too many extras.
I would like to take it back to a barebones OS and reinstall userland
without having to re-install OS - can someone suggest safest and least
BTW - I stayed with 4.11 mainly because it is stable, and it does what
it is supposed to do - well, on fairly light hardware, IBM PIII-600 w.
256MB. If it ain't broke...... When the hardware breaks it will
probably be time to upgrade the software and check out 6.x's new goodies
- or maybe it will be 7.x or 8.x by that time. ..;--)
Kindness can be infectious - try it.
