I really can't trust my poor memory but this time I am at least close to what
I told you that I maybe remembered.
so I did a google search and found this http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/blog/2008/03/taking_a_good_long_look_at_vec.html
Vector Linux can be run on a pen drive. Any distro which uses the Linux-Live scripts supports a frugal install and VL Light Live is no different. It has a 350MB footprint so it will fit on a 512MB pen drive easily. VL Mini has a 200MB footprint so it can be modified to fit on a 256MB pen drive. VL Mini is still early in development so I have no idea if that functionality will be included. It would be a good idea, though. Considering how inexpensive 256MB and 512MB USB sticks are I don't see getting under 128MB as terribly important and I don't think Vector Linux will ever be that small.

Taking A Good Long Look At Vector Linux 5.9 Standard

so that was what my poor memory did interpret to you saying this was so and
you liked Vector and so I put it on my list of those distros me should try out.
I have not counted but I trust me have tested all the major ones on the Distrowatch list.
I placed vector linux 5.9 Std live CD as one of the three that suites me best.
So that is why I want to be able to do a frugal install and with the mounting
of sda1 activated.
Why I don't want to do the partitioning?
Cause I have windows XP on it and I tried several times to do defrag and resize and
to do partition with the Ubuntu live CD and had to give up on it. It just didn't work on
my gear. something with the hardware. I asked and asked and asked about it in Ubuntu
forum but gave up cause one moderator there thought me a Troll which I certainly am not.
I'm just a socially clumsy naive person that fail to find words that explain what I try to say.
No I will not do partition. Maybe if I find a scrapped computer in the dumpster I test on
that one. I saw a harddrive ibm ten GB today so maybe I could practice on that one.
A Packard Bell old desktop but without power supply. no memories either.
