First, a question: what do you want this machine to do?
852 MB should be enough. Go with a "Custom" installation, and
you'll need to be utterly ruthless about not installing unneeded
Once you're up and running: a) compile a custom kernel, and b)
change the settings on newsyslog so you don't keep excess files
