Question:

>> Can we create a Minimal Master page in WSS 3.0, not MOSS? 

Answer:

There are no official information how to create minimal master page for WSS. Microsoft published article for MOSS only http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa660698.aspx, and this master page is not supported for WSS due to specific MOSS controls and paths.

Usually, when you create WSS master page you use that MOSS guideline, and then start fixing erros removing/replacing the controls that doesn't exist in MOSS.

There are couple of post, where you can find already minimalistic master page for the WSS:
