Default completely remove unwanted apps

How do I completely remove rather than rename unwanted apps?

Specifically, what commands have to be entered into the shell? And where can I find a listing of the apps in rom?

I am rooted and have some knowledge of adb and the android sdk. here are just a number of the apps I never will use, so I would prefer to free up memory.

Thanks...

As an example, to remove Footprints:
Code:
adb remount
adb shell rm /system/app/*Foot*

That I don't know. The most likely candidates are pretty obvious anyway.
