    It would be extremely hard to make a distro as fully featured as Suse for as small as you are looking for (less than 1 CDs worth of packages). Vector would be a good bet for you at the 1 CD mark, and so would PCLinuxOS.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    If you want a good full-featured distro, check out www.linuxcd.org.
    They have distros for $1.99 and up to $25 for the SuSE dvd.

    If you only have dial-up, you can also order Ubuntu Linux CDs for free, you don't even have to pay shipping costs.

    PCLinuxOS is a distro based on Mandrake that runs as a live CD. It also gives you the option to install to your hard disk if you decide you like it.
