Smallest Linux distro that supports Speedtouch 330?


Hello,
The only reason I still have XP on my machine is because I have the notorious Speedtouch 330. Installing a new distro can mean I have to go back into WinDoze and visit this very site because something hasn't quite worked and obviously I can't get online from within Linux.

But it occoured to me, by Linux's varied nature there has to be a distro that has been designed to work on a very small partition. If I could set up the small partition with the Speedtouch I could finally cut the 'apron strings'.

I've been using Linux for less than a year, so I still need a graphical desktop, but apart from that it will purely be a network connection and a web browser.

So, as with any 'please suggest a distro' thread, let the arguments begin

Me again,

Slightly different angle;

If there were any Live Disc that supported the Speedtouch 330, that could also be an option.
