You need to use petbegone and then create a "remastered" Puppy CD.

Ah, sorry I didn't realise. Apparently petbegone doesn't work with 4.3.x
There are links for at least two solutions at http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01763

Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic - Moo 009 - quick, advanced remastering tool

Or there is doing it manually. By looking inside PET(S) of the apps you want to remove. (They are .tar.gz archives. To add support for PET in Xarchive. Update your Xarchive wrappers with mine: Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic - Improving The Wrappers From Xarchive) and deleting the appropriate files form the "***-***.sfs" (.E.G. "pup-431.sfs") by mounting it (Just click on it to do that.). then copying all the files in it on to a Linux formatted drive/partition then do the editing and finally rebuilding it with the command "dir2sfs". If a app has a menu entry then you will need to remove the line for it from the file "/root/.jwmrc" as well as removing it's ".desktop"file from /usr/share/applications/ (This you should have done any way as it will be in the PET of the package you are removing.)
