Puppy Linux system requirements(recommended) for Runescape on a Live USB


I am wondering if you can play Runescape on Puppy Linux(Slackware) with Java, Flash, and the plug-ins are all installed, and i use a Live Usb.
Is this possible? Recommended Requirements(and please don't write the bare minimum)

* Processor speed?
* Ram?

You must be new to LQ, so I'll just inform you that you should probably get used to googeling your question before you post. Especially when Runescape has a Wiki page dedicated to it's requirements.
Puppy is really light, so it's should be any problem with any PC made in the last 8 or so years...

It would be most helpful if you did try it yourself and then report back on this post as to how well it worked.

Puppy is maybe the best choice for older or weaker systems right now. If any disto would work that may. First try puppy or any version of puppy and see how it works. If you have enough ram you may be able to boot the OS to ram to make it faster. Otherwise your systems may support usb boot. Puppy is a bit different so some of the live usb creators may not be able to make a puppy usb. You should be able to boot to live cd and then make a pup install on usb.

Does the size of the Puppy OS, Java(jre),Flash, add by the size of the files/folders into the ram? If i installed wine(Wine Is Not an Emulator), would that affect my RAM while i play runescape.
