I wouldn't be concerned about unnecessary stuff installed that just
occupies disk space for as long as it is not running. I usually disable
all services except for:
network sshd syslog atd random iptables crond anacron vservers
and you need to make sure that sshd is bound to the main server ip so that
vservers can still use theirs.
