I have 11.04 installed, and was poking around and saw that I had more than my Intel Video Drivers installed.
Do I need them?
What is the best way to "trim the fat"?

If you're referring to display drivers that come with xorg, for example
xserver-xorg-video-apm xserver-xorg-video-ark xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-ati-dbg xserver-xorg-video-chips xserver-xorg-video-cirrus xserver-xorg-video-displaylink xserver-xorg-video-dummy xserver-xorg-video-fbdev ...
You can remove some of them with
apt-get remove <driver_name> if you want to but I'd advise against it. They are there in case you happen to change your display adapter and they don't take up very much space.
Removing one of them also removes
xserver-xorg-video-all which is the metapackage containing all the display drivers that come with xorg. This shouldn't cause any problems, but I'd still play it safe and leave it alone.
