For CentOS it's around 800MB used for the base OS image.  There are
certainly things that can be paired out from that to reduce it even
further, 800MB is a fairly full-featured install.  I think the minimal
install is around 700MB and even then things can be removed.  It really
depends on what software you want on the system...

Probably the smallest you can get it is around 400MB, and still have it be
quite useful.
