Minimum disk space required for OpenBSD?


Please just tell me the minimum disk space requirements for OpenBSD. How low can one go with disk space when installing OpenBSD WITHOUT the GUI and all that extra stuff?

Thanks for the help.

This is an OpenBSD 4.5 server of mine with only basic packages installed:

# du -h --max-depth=1
4.0K	./tmp
1.1G	./usr
3.2M	./etc
56K	./dev
4.0K	./home
932K	./root
4.0K	./mnt
14M	./sbin
6.1M	./var
4.0K	./altroot
4.0K	./stand
7.0M	./bin
1.1G	.
You may strip that down even more if you like...
