si there any distro that can do this?
it currently has windows XP(service pack 2)
the CD rom drive is broken
and i can boot from flash drive as i get error messages on startup*
it has 50mb of ram
so i need a linux distro that can install on windows from a floppy that will run on a computer with 50mb, the only thing i need it for is to play music from my external hard-drive
*if i plug in my USB after windows boots it works fine but if i try to boot and book from disk and install that way i get "error 303, keyboard or device error" or something like that

Or you can download VLC exe. For Windows to a USB stick and install it from there. Its just a player though, Not a operating system.
