The Intrepid server CD has a minimal install option (press F4 at the
boot menu to select it).

Alternatively, use expert mode (press F6 twice at the boot menu). Note
that this asks a LOT of questions, but hey, you asked for more

I don't think it is reasonable to ask for this in the main installation
flow by default. This was an intentional decision.
