    There are some floppy based linux distro's, IIRc there is one called somthing like blue linux(?) also I think that there are a few slackware distros on floppies.

    As for live cd's, a list off the top of my head:
    knoppix
    slax
    Simply Mepis
    mandrake move
    gnoppix

    Well thanks, but do you know of any that are small and don't take up a lot of space and will run decent on a old computer?

    I assume you're refering to the live CDs? This article on live CDs might help you out. It depends what you define as "old" but the article tests a computer with a PII and 128MB of RAM.
