It depends on what clients you are serving to. If you've got windows
clients install samba. If you've got unix clients, install nfsd. If
you've got macs around, install netatalk.

Yeah, 200 mb is nothing these days. When you get to the screen where yast
gets setup for the installation of software packages you can load a
configuration then immediately Change/create configuration to adjust which
packages get installed. Get draconian. Anything that looks like an
application or development tool should be eliminated. Then eliminate more
stuff for good measure.
