    Since you do not desire anything on your hard drive, I would recommend Slax over Puppy, especially since it has a 32-bit download for USB in just about any language I can think of -- http://www.slax.org/en/download.php
    Please read the Documentation section

    Hi to install puppy to your flash drive:
    1.) simply download and install lili: http://www.linuxliveusb.com/
    2.) select your iso, or select from a list of distrobutions, then click install.
    3.) reboot and select usb drive from boot menu.
    puppy is now able to boot from your flash drive.
