Take a look at the Gentoo Network Appliance Project.  It can easily run in 
64MB of RAM for most tasks.  You can customize the image to take out 
services you don't need.  This has the added advantage of letting you 
maintain the configurations in a way that makes for easy provisioning of 
a new service/VM.
