Installing Linux on an USB Device


Is there such a linux that would fit on a typical 128 MB USB Device? If so, what is it called and where can I get it, and is it good?

All the linux i use take up like GBs of space and i dont want to buy that big of a device because they are expensive

Puppy and Damn Small Linux will both fit on a pen drive. There are others (I think there's a Gentoo USB stick project as well), but I don't know what they are. Try looking on distrowatch. That's where I find otu about most of the new distro info.
