Would like a version of Linux that will install itself on a usb drive and run from it. Also need it delivered, have dail-up. Can't afford something really expensive limited to $10.00

Check out www.distrowatch.com if the distro is not there it is not worth downloading.  You should not need to "buy" linux.

Do not BUY linux

Also, and this probably isnt anything you are looking for but at least the info is out there:

A REALLY good webserver package is out there for linux (and windows). Its called LAMPP and it is insanely easy to install and get a webserver up in under 20 minutes.

Jesse,

Damn Small linux is the way to go.  It will do what you want it to and also it is a very small download.  I think 50 megs Max!  Good Luck!

What about Harv AI9NL linux hamradio software.

http://hamshack-hack.sourceforge.net/

It's not only on a cd, but I think it's also good on a USB-stick.
