    I think I got it down to 1.3 GB, but that might have been Panther

    I got Tiger down to ~2gb. But I did leave the HP printer drivers and removed everything else.

    The language packs and drivers are HUGE. Default install is like 10gb.

    I forget what it's called, but there's an application that deletes installation and help files that are in different languages. That right there frees up a few gigabytes of wasted space.

    I know what you're talking about; it's called "DeLocalizer." It's made by Mike Bombich of Carbon Copy Cloner and NetRestore fame. Use caution if using this in Tiger, since he's discontinued further development of this program.

    I've used it once in Tiger when preparing an OS image for mass deployment, it seems to work fine, but again, I recommend you use it with caution.
