Distributions that can be installed in 1GB?
Are there any recent distributions that can be installed into a 1GB hard drive partition? I just need to test something, it does not need to have any fancy bells and whistles, just something that gets me to a desktop or even a shell.

If I'm not wrong,If you do custom install and choosing correct package. you can install Fedora or Ubuntu. Or else Slax: your pocket operating system should fit

Distributions Under 1GB?
Everybody always forgets about Puppy Linux. The 4.2.1 version is newish enough, updateable, Seamonkey web browser also updateable. Uses it's own package management, but in experiments with sfs Deb and Ubuntu parts are used.
Uses minimal system resources, minimal drive space. THE Mini Linux to turn to.

What is it that you need to test? Without knowing your specific needs, I'd suggest Puppy or Slax as they're small and yet have lots of software available. Tiny Core last time I looked at it lacked wireless support and a lot of other things, it was only 10 Mbs.
I don't believe Fedora will fit into that space, why not use a liveCD? That should be the first choice for testing.

AGREED !!! How about 167 MBytes !!!
I am using Puppy 5.25 in 167 MBytes of a USB flash drive.
as reported by GpartEd .
Sys is 167 MB of a 2GB USB flash drive, which includes FireFox, Abiword, etc.
Downloaded super-file sets (like LibreOffice.sfs, Gimp.sfs) sitting on another partition.
