Best tiny small live linux


I am just wondering what is the best small (as in 50-100mb) live bootable linux. As i was wanting a small bootable linux i can carry around with me that is not meant as a full operating system but just a portable safe way of browsing the net from malware.

Also i would like it to be firefox based for internet surfing.

Are there any youd recommend.

Thanks

I like DamnSmallLinux, personally. It runs extremely quickly for a LiveCD, and has few system requirements.

Yeah, slight problem - Knoppix is a 700mb ISO.

Here are a few:

Slax - http://slax.linux-live.org/ - 180Mb, fits on an 8cm CD (Business Card)
Damn Small Linux - http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/ - 50Mb
ByzantineOS - http://byzgl.sourceforge.net/ - Based on the Mozilla Desktop

etc...

Have a look at www.distrowatch.com - Click "Search", then click "Live CD's" and have a read of the reviews...
