I have a spare 1GB USB stick around, and a bit of free time on my hands. What I essentially want to do is to create my own live build of (preferably) Ubuntu or Debian for two simple purposes: speedy bootup on a netbook, and web browsing.
I want to install a persistent USB build to my 1GB stick, and have it literally include only the following: XFCE, Firefox Aurora (the dev channel), Google Chrome (again, the dev channel), and a terminal client. The only reason I request persistence is for updates (as both programs update frequently). Any suggestions?
Don't want to sound particularly MacGyver-ish, but all I have on hand is my Windows 7 desktop, a single DVD+RW, an 8GB flash drive with valuable data on it, and said 1GB flash drive.
