USB Linux distro suggestions

looking into having one to carry around but haven't really found one that tickles my fancy.

USB drive's a measly 512MB. I'm poor, don't hate me
so I can't slap Fedora or Ubuntu in it.

Puppy, and some pupplets, for some reason Firefox crashes in some websites.
TinyMe, mainly because for the love of god I can't figure out how to get firefox installed, even with Synaptic...

right now, I'm booting up Wolvix to give it a go.

any suggestions?

I'D Stick With Puppy

I have had real good luck with Puppy but I admit, their package management regima requires a bit of a learning curve. Download the Opera browser from Pup-get or whatever it is and go from there.

Good luck, Michael

anyone else have suggestions?

Currently fiddling with SLAX and so far I like the look and speed of it. Though getting the installer files is a bit of a pain since it doesn't use Slackwares default application type thingy and not much stuff on the official/approved user submitted modules.

I only want firefox 3 current default is konqueror, and the official module for firefox is version 2.

I'm having a ball configuring flash too.
and WINE.
