Alas DSL is long dead, it's not been updated since 2008 which is sad, I
always quite liked it. Having said that,
for those looking for a very light distro with X one of their devs went
on to create the 10MB tinycore linux...

"Our goal is the creation of a nomadic ultra small graphical desktop
operating system capable of booting from cdrom, pendrive, or frugally
from a hard drive. The desktop boots extremely fast and is able to
support additional applications and hardware of the users choice. While
Tiny Core always resides in ram, additional applications extensions can
either reside in ram, mounted from a persistent storage device, or
installed into a persistent storage device."
