How about DruidBSD? http://druidbsd.sf.net/
- ISO is 24MB
- Contains over 150 standard (and some non-standard) BSD utilities
- Runs entirely from memory
- Is based on FreeBSD-8.1
- Includes the tmpfs kernel module (should you need to allocate more
disk space from RAM)
- Works from optical media (CD/DVD) and USB flash drives
- Utilizes crunchgen to maintain tiny footprint
- Designed to be a fully-operational FreeBSD distribution for embedded
devices but doubles as an amazing rescue-disc
- Graphical boot-loader
Full Disclosure: I'm the author.
1. Download either DruidBSD-X.Y.iso (24MB) or Druid-X.Y.iso (same as
former, but adds valuable diagnostic utilities such as windiag, memtest,
seatools, dban, and killdisk; 32MB).
2. Burn to optical media _or_ use dd(1) to write directly to thumb drive
_or_ load it directly into a VMware virtual machine's virtual-CDROM.
3. Boot. That's it.
NOTE: If http://druidbsd.sf.net/ doesn't load for you, try instead
http://druidbsd.sourceforge.net/ (the former produces a 302-redirect to
the latter which may not be followed by all HTTP clients).
