Can some one tell me how to remove the Meta Links in the sidebar that come with a new install of Wordpress?

I do not see that information in the database tables.  Perhaps it's being generated in the core code?
Meta
    * Log in
    * Valid XHTML
    * XFN
    * WordPress

Open in new window

wp-content\themes\default\sidebar.php

you can remove that from here line 56 - 69

<?php /* If this is the frontpage */ if ( is_home() || is_page() ) { ?>
                        <?php wp_list_bookmarks(); ?>

                        <li><h2>Meta</h2>
                        <ul>
                              <?php wp_register(); ?>
                              <li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
                              <li><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" title="This page validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional">Valid <abbr title="eXtensible HyperText Markup Language">XHTML</abbr></a></li>
                              <li><a href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/"><abbr title="XHTML Friends Network">XFN</abbr></a></li>
                              <li><a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.">WordPress</a></li>
                              <?php wp_meta(); ?>
                        </ul>
                        </li>
                  <?php } ?>
