usb bootable distros
What's guys/gals. This is my first post.
I've used linux on and off for some time. I consider myself to be between noob and intermediate in knowledge.
I'm looking for a distro that can boot from a usb pen drive. I was messing around with damn small linux for the last couple of days, but decided not to keep using it because the software that it has is just too outdated.
Here are the things that I would like from a distro:
1) ability to boot from usb pendrive(or whatever they're called)
2) will allow me to install up to date software, not just the outdated packages that the creators allow.
3) will fit within 1GB
