DetaolB is a small size x86/uclibc distro, aimed mostly for emulators/virtualizers.

With this iso's size around 40Mb, you've a small yet functional desktop distro which can help developping C software or compiling the linux kernel. It can then self emulate with included qemu-0.9.0 ;-)

DetaolB v0.6 has been released 26,August 2007 on sf.net
=> http://detaolb.sf.net

Changelog:
- re-shuffled the barebone system
- this is a multi-user iso now with 2 logins: root and neo
- updated git and vim
- added some asm tools and binary editor
- vesafb-tng is still in use (uvesafb is having problems on real hardware
- added liveusb switch to kernel parameters
- added qemu-0.9.0 with kqemu (all you need to do: insmod `find /lib -name *.ko` )

This distro works in qemu, vmplayer, virtualpc 2007 and some real hardware... You can copy on a FAT32 formatted usb key the "modules" subdirectory from the iso, boot from the iso and add "liveusb" to the graphical resolution you want to boot in. This allows to add/remove/upgrade the modules on the usb key (no need to burn more cdroms)
