Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think there are quite a few that cover those requirements. Just don't use Gnome or KDE for your desktop. Slackware is probably the best because after you install it, it asks what interface you want(select fluxbox/blackbox).
You could always install whatever distro you want then put fluxbox on after that.
I tryed gentoo and gave up I refuse to recompile kernals it is tremendos waste of time. any distro won't work I tryed debian and madrake and they were quite unstable and unusible plus I could not find any good c++ ides had code completionand the works for them.

Debian unstable Do you install the stable version? Do a net install and select minimal packages. Then just put on xorg and fluxbox.
C++ IDEs don't have anything to do with distros. They'll run on any.
Debian is an extremely stable distro, so not sure where you got the unstable impression.
The primary reason for recompiling the kernel is to either incorporate some hardware support that isn't already there or to simply make the kernel smaller. Except for Gentoo, I don't know of any distro that requires you to recompile the kernel so I'm not sure what that has to do with your question.
I was using debian with kde and had constant crashes. I had it set to redmond styles and if you double clicked on just about anything the whole system would come down. but anyway. you think fluxbox is stable? were do I begin.
