Mandrake has a sort of reputation for being bloated, so unless you do a custom install and know exactly what you want and don't want, space is going to be a problem.

I personally would use Slackware or Debian on a hard drive of that size. The default Debian install, for instance, is only 50 MB. You use apt-get from there to install what you want.
