Embedded Thin Client Distro


I want a very small linux distro which can be used for thin client nodes.

The linux should fit on 128 MB Flash Disk & provide configuration option
to connect to various protocols like RDP, ICA etc. I have tried ThinStation & 2X-PXE but it creates image file of Linux & all configurations have to be done through config files.

If any body have used VXL or HP thin clients, I want something similar to it. They have got small linux distro installed on DOM or Flash Memory and have connection manager software which can be used to connect different Servers. Also there should be GUI interfact to setup various configurations required for connections to Servers, Select various protocls, Printer setup etc.
