What I did is :
then :
urpme of all packages except basesystem, urpmi, openssh-server, msec,
locales-fr, and tcsh (I found this in a Mandriva forum).
The disk space is still of about 450Mb (better than the initial 660Mb).
When I add samba-server and samba-client, it increases up to 550Mb.
When I add msec-gui, it goes up to 650Mb.
