The perfect distro for me...

I am looking for a distro with these specs...

- Very small
- Uses Fluxbox
- Easy To create the boot floppy*
- Live CD, but installable to Hard Disk
- Newbie-friendly

*For example, it is not (in my humble opinion) easy too create the boot floppy for DSL, I want something preferably right on the CD.

There are lots of distros out there, I know, but if anyone has something that darts to mind, tell me.

Isn't Knoppix big? I mean like almost as small as DSL, but easier to make the boot floppy.
