Vector Linux minimum hard drive space?

Anyone here use Vector Linux? I'm wondering what the minimum required hard drive space is? I've been able to find info for a full install (about 500 Meg) but not sure about a minimal install, ie. no x-windowing system.

The last time I installed Vector, the x-windows install file was slightly larger than the base install file.
A rough guess might be 200-300 MB for a base install. I would guess the lower but have not really tried it.
What size a you needing to get down to?
Peanut Linux used to offer a minimal install (around 100 MB). Don't know if they still do.
