CentOS 6.1 base install (like FreeBSD base install)?

What is the simplest way to install CentOS 6.1 with console base-system only using official LiveDVD image on VirtualBox machine? I'd like to get simplest console with network support like FreeBSD base installation. Then, install services which I need.
The installer jest extracts the LiveCD image to hard drive. I cannot choose package options.

I'm looking for the best howto for this purpose. I'm new to Red Hat.

I found the isos below at Index of /pub/centos/6.2/isos/x86_64

I currently use:
OS, ker|rel, machine: Linux, 2.6.32-220.17.1.el6.x86_64, x86_64
Distribution        : CentOS release 6.2 (Final)

in a VM.

I don't recall that I have personally used these, but if I wanted to choose packages, I think I'd start with them, along with available documentation.

I don't know if other mirrors have these, but mirror links from here - content could be checked.

Best wishes ... cheers, drl

When installing, enter TAB at the boot prompt and enter "text" at the end of the boot command. See RHEL6 Chapter*7.*Booting the Installer
