WIM filesize mgmt

I have run into the issue of the Vista WIM file being over 4gb and I am aware now that it should be less to work correctly. My question is this:

How are we to manage the size of this file and what are the components that have the greatest impact on it's size? Is there a way to remove some of the installations from the disk? Can the WIM file be reduced in size after it is created?

Thank you very much in advance.

I have successfully built a 32 bit unattended install disk for Vista, but when I try the 64 bit, the very first runthrough bloats the WIM file to 4.4GB... any ideas? Is there something that I should do to VLite to stop this?

Thank you again in advance!
