I did some research - it looks like I might be able to do this with kickstart:

http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.2/Installation_Guide/s1-kickstart2-startinginstall.html

However, I'm unsure exactly which of those options to use.  This seems
like a common task - are there any good tutorials which show the exact
process to create an basic CentOS image in a chroot via kickstart?

Thanks,
