I've not done this, but there have been several threads about this
topic. Since the experienced folks might have gone home already, I
thought I would use my (in)famous memory to mention a few things I
recall they might say.

1. The CentOS wiki has a lot of useful guides and FAQS. Be sure you
check them out.

2. Use the list search features to find a couple of the threads posted
about "stripped", "DVD", "minimal CentOS", etc.

3. When searching using google, you can use the "site" restriction to
get just CentOS site stuff. That saves time sometimes.

4. If you've done the above, please forgive - I'm just hoping to save
you some time.
