Plesk 8.0 uninstall and dependencies

    I have read the section in the Plesk installation guide about removing Plesk from a *nix system.
    The only thing that worries me is that I am instructed to "rpm -e" all Plesk related modules with "--nodeps".

    As a simple example, trying to remove just psa-qmail WITHOUT --nodeps brings up the following:

    rpm -e psa-qmail
    error: Failed dependencies:
    smtp_daemon is needed by (installed) mailx-11.4-3
    smtp_daemon is needed by (installed) cron-4.1-20
    smtp_daemon is needed by (installed) fetchmail-6.2.5-59.4
    psa-qmail is needed by (installed) psa-courier-imap-add-8.0.0-suse9.3.build80060331.13
    psa-qmail is needed by (installed) psa-qmail-rblsmtpd-0.70-suse9.3.build80060331.13
    psa-qmail is needed by (installed) psa-8.0.0-suse9.3.build80060427.19

    Now obviously there are some non-Plesk packages that depend on Plesk packages. I'll be the first to admit that I'm a noob when it comes to *nix, but I know that blindly removing packages on which other packages depend is not such a marvellous idea. cron, for example, is not something i want to break while uninstalling Plesk.

    Can anyone give me some pointers on this?
    My server is a virtual (Suse 9.3), which my hosting company is managing with Virtuozzo. It came with Plesk pre-installed, though not activated.
    I'd like to remove Plesk completely.

    Thanks for any help! :)
