Slax is a relatively small install. It uses compression technology which means that the whole thing takes up only about 180-200MB, dependant upon which additional optional modules you put in.
There are other distos available, but the smaller you go, the less functionality you get.
For example, DSL (Damn Small Linux) takes up only 50MB, but has a very basic window manager and lacks functionality in comparison.
If you don't like these, you could try Flash Linux (Gnome desktop only, but very nice) or Deep Water Linux.
Just download the iso's, boot from CD, see which you prefer and install that one to your memstick.
