Nope. Expert just means you'll be doing allot of stuff manually, Like
partitioning, package selection, configureing X, and some net stuff.

I was just using that as an example. Being able to disbale whatever part
of the kernel you want might be really helpfull in many cases... Maybe
procfs was a bad example... :P
