Not even necessary to do the text based install--keep in mind that in
CentOS 6, thanks to RH feeling Fedora is their development platform, and
Fedora being aimed more at the imaginary, somewhat moronic (in the
developers' minds) "average user", text installation is crippled.

If using GUI mode, choose customize now--one advantage RH 6 will have is
the ability to, in the main selection screen, choose minimal which will
do this for you--then, as Jorge says, uncheck everything.  Basically
uncheck the desktops, go through applications from top to bottom, in
servers, I believe it's just print server that they install by default,
and then uncheck everything in base as well--go to the bottom, because X
server is the last thing listed, so make sure you go through EVERYTHING
in base.  (You won't have to open options for each thing you uncheck,
just unchecking them is sufficient.)
