I'm no expert, but I believe the only way to remove the default drivers is
to recompile the kernel. The installation will let you add a few things
(like ethernet driver, etc), but I don't think you can take stuff out.

Yes, it is too hard. But it's not too hard to accomplish. Worry about
getting a basic system working first, then try getting X working. Basically
three things I would suggest: 1) Install the X-base and dependent packages.
2) Check your /etc/Xserver file to make sure the first line points to the
server (sortta video mode/resolution/driver) you want to run. 3) Run
XF86Setup; if that doesn't work, try xf86config; if that doesn't work,
holler for help on this list.
