That's treading on thin ice. I wouldn't recommend it. Delete something in
the system entry point table and you could be in for a damaged system
requiring a reload. Better to go LICPGM and uninstall any program products
or features that you don't need, like unused language dictionaries, DOS
(maybe OS2) client access modules, previous release compiler support,
System36 environment and compilers, etc. You can save the products to tape
first so that you can reinstall if necessary. Also print the disk analysis
in order by object size and see if it turns up anything you can delete,
like old journal receivers, history files, etc. You can also run CPROBJ and
compress all program templates. That usually recovers a fair amount of storage.
