Zipslack is a good thing to look at... it's fully functional.

Have a look at BusyBox (www.busybox.net), and uClibc (www.uClibc.org).
You
could even build a minimalist system within a floppy with the
requirements
you have.

There is also zipslack (or was it slackzip?) that is a stripped down
version
of slackware that fits on a ZIP-100 cartdridge. I even managed to get a
MDK 8.1 to install on a ZIP-100 (that, was awfull! ;-/ ).

Cheers,
Yann.
