We'll see how I manage that; here in Norway it is not so easy to find
things like that, and transport costs from the US are prohibitive for
a hobby budget.

Are there any FAQ's arounf for things I can safely remove from a 6.1

I won't need NFS, so that's not a problem.

Hmm, I'm not very familiar with Qemu. A quick web search didn't turn up
any obvious pointers on how to create a ISO image from a qemu image, or
how to make an ISO image from the (currently running) Qemu image.
Do you have any pointers to a HowTo for this?

Yes, this sounds like a good plan.
