UML Builder GUI installs all packages in RedHat 7.3
regardless of which packages I select. I want a simple
network only based disto, and I'm getting all kinds of
X stuff which is filling up my image.

    This comes from the way Redhat defines their components,
    which I copy. If you look in
    the /usr/lib/uml/umlbuilder/profiles/RedHat7.3.p file you can
    see them all defined.

    I note that network-tools includes a whole bunch of KDE stuff,
    and that network server includes vnc. Their respective
    dependcies will bring in all the X stuff you don't want. I'll have
    a fiddle with this stuff and move the rpms which require X to be
    in the one of the X based selections instead.

    UML Builder also creates the files as sparse files. Run 'control
    du' and you'll see how much file space is actually being used. It
    also includes a miniroot that allows you to resize and change
    the size of filesystems. This is currently undocumented, and
    the resize doesn't like reiserfs, but I'll work on it.

    I have fixed the profile so that network tools and network
    server do not include any X based stuff. This will be available in
    the next release of UML Builder.
