Fairly similar in size are puppy linux and colinux. I am particularly
interested in qemu/puppy
(http://www.erikveen.dds.nl/qemupuppy/index.html) and colinux
(http://www.colinux.org) which run at the same time as windows xp off
a usb flashdrive without a reboot of ms windows. So you could put it
together with vista on a 256 MB flashdrive for your own convenience.
colinux currently has the advantage of looking to the LAN like a spare
linux box with its own ip address using a TAP device, though the next
version is going to use slirp, which is simpler.
Puppy is an amazingly well-put-together-for-such-a-small-footprint
distribution. It is free but not Free in parts.
colinux is better integrated with windows, but more alpha. puppy would
need to be tortured a bit to work with TAP or slirp.
I would suggest you look into torturing a puppy, it looks like it
would be fun.
