Removing x windows, gnome

I am running Asterisk IP Telephony of Fedora Core 7 and 8, and I have been asked to remove x-windows and gnome, but I am afriad of the side effect for such step. I googled some and found that to remove x-windows I can use:

yum groupremove 'X Window System'

But does this safe?
How to remove gnome?

Any advise?
Regards
Bilal

Will there be any side effects if you remove the X Windowing System? Well, yes, you might say so. You won't have a GUI any more, just a CLI. And as far as removing Gnome, I suspect that this would happen when you removed X, as Gnome has X as a dependency. What I don't understand is why, by the Sacred Chair of Steve Ballmer, you wuld need to uninstall X and Gnome to install Asterisk IP Telephony.

Um... I'm not so sure that a groupremove of X Window System is such a Good Idea™©® since it may also remove mouse and keyboard support. But maybe I'm wrong about that. Groupremove of GNOME may actually be safer.

No, you can still use the mouse in console mode (via gpm), and obviously the keyboard will still work. Run a console framebuffer and you'd even have some of the usual graphics capabilities (view images, videos, etc).

"Why I need to remove the x windows and its relation with Asterisk IP Telephony":
It is because the x windows effect on the performance which effect on the IVR and hence the DTMF and capturing the dialed digits correctly.

enter your root password
yum -y groupremove "X Window System"

It's good to experiment, that's the best way to learn in my opinion. Don't worry, if you screw something up, you'll just learn more, and I bet next time you won't make the same mistake.
