need a portable linux distro to bring on portable usb hard drive...
 
i'm looking for a linux distro to bring aroun on my portble hard drive. it has to be very basic, it needs 3 things: a file browser, a web browser, and a wifi manager(if possible). it would be better if it had ssuppor for lzma or rpm. don't post slax. also, i would prefer kde to gnome, if possible.


ps. i also need to be able to compile in it, because i want to add a personal suite of apps. i need a distro i can compile in.

How can something be very basic running KDE and being able to compile? I can recommend some distributions, but none that has the basics + kde + development tools...

If you're putting it on a portable usb HDD, why does it need to be very basic?

Because i need to put my own apps on it, and i have limited disk space!

to mega man x: which is the lightest distro you can think of which has at least development tools and very few pre installed apps. i don't necessarily need kde. any desktop environment is fine
