that's not hard to fix with the gparted live CD. 
1. boot windows, defrag the partition(s).
2. shut down windows.
3. boot gparted live
4. in my experience the "main" windows partition is nearest the end,
   so using gparted, shrink it enough to leave adequate space for
   Centos. I won't go into how to use gparted, it's not hard, so you
   can surely figure it out (I did!:)
5. boot windows and let it do its thing with "repairing" the disk.
6. run your Centos installer, being sure NOT to let it mess with
   your windows partition(s).
7. see my other note about how to get it to dual boot with windows.
