Is there any way to boot from a 128mb usb drive?  If not what linux can I use to boot from it?  I don't necessarily need a GUI.

Sure. I boot DSL with full GUI from a 64MB pendrive.
Booting from a pendrive depends on the booting machine's BIOS capabilities.

Great!, I wonder why all the documentation says I need a 256 mb drive to boot.

I wonder where you saw that, as DSL just requires a 50mb+ partition

I can't seem to find the documentation I was looking at -- I may just be going crazy or something -- I will post any links to bad documentation that says that DSL requires a 256mb usb drive to boot on this topic if I find it.

Thanks again for the great DSL support/community,
