    Small bootable distro wanted.

    I'm looking for a distro that I can put onto a CD or a floppy and then install a program so I can do some memory and CPU stress testing. I was going to get Knoppix but I really want to do it today, and its going to take a wee while to download 700MB. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could use?

    The gentoo livecd in experimental right now has memtest kernel and various stuff to stress test your setup - it's a 100meg download or so.

    From the FAQ:

    1) tomsrtbt is
    "The most GNU/Linux on one floppy disk"
    for: rescue recovery panic & emergencies
    tools to keep in your shirt pockets
    whenever you can't use a hard drive
    Tomsrtbt stands for:
    "Tom's floppy which has a root filesystem and is also bootable."
