You seem to be looking for something almost nobody cares about, and then
complain about how hard it is to find. The world has moved a long way since

I used to use Toms Root Boot disk back in the Win3.1 days. Complete distro
on a 1.44M floppy, including ssh client, pppd dialer (for dial up), and the
best editor now or then, vi. Linux to go. Lacked a GUI of course, but its
still available and with a little effort and cleverness could probably have
X shoehorned into it (though obviously not still living on a floppy), and
keep the whole thing under 10Megs. Maybe. Depending on the inevitable X
bloat factor.
