    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Most distributions will want more than 128 MB of RAM, but you can find some lightweight distributions that might suit your needs here:

    You could try doing a minimal base install only of Arch, Crux, Debian, or Gentoo, then install only what you want or need on top of that, but they might complain about the low RAM count, and will probably run rather slowly.

    Puppy and DSL should work with those specs. Being able to load from a pen drive will depend more on your bios than on the distro. Does your bios support booting from USB? You can download them and search for other options at distrowatch.com. Good luck with the hunt.
