Emdebian currently needs about 200Mb flash and probably 64MB RAM,
althogh I haven't tested on such a small machine recently. It has the
same memory footprint as Debian, and a rather smaller disk footprint.
We don't have a uclinx version which would work on MMUless machines.
You probably want to be looking at something like OPenWRT for the sort
of really small, cheap, hardware you are thinking about.
Debian/emdebian is a bit fat.
