According to one of the forum's senior members, yes, you can - with some conditions (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=55860)

I did, on a 512kb flash drive. Have a look at this http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/
Lot of fun. My sister cracked up when I told her I'd partitioned a flash drive and installed linux on it.

You could still do it with 512 kB. (Just, with a minimal kernel). You do it with Memtest86. ;)
