It was included until 6.3 but got removed once the concept of the 
minimal ISO was changed from " a minimum of packages needed to have a 
functional system " to "a set of installed packages almost identical to 
the one installed when choosing the group named "Minimal" from the full 
DVD image." See 
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOSMinimalCD6.4 vs 

And I have to be honest and declare that I have no idea why we[*] 
included presto in the first iterations of the disk. It was an error, it 
should not have been there.
