Ok, so you're not exactly impressed with the kernel... That's ok :)

Another ultra-minimal distro that may be interesting is Toms RTBT at

It is a super-small compressed distro that fits onto one diskette. It
boots, uncompresses the filesystem into a ramdisk, and operates from
there. Everything is in memory, and doesn't touch your drives at all
(unless you tell it to). Disk space needed is -0- bytes.

Takes a minute or two to boot, but makes a very nice ultra-mini setup
that I use for system administration and such. I can't get it to make a
dialup net connection (it only supports network links), but it's still
fun to play with.

You can find a list of mini-distros of varying types and sizes and
feature ranges at
