My fav small and efficient distro so far is Vector Linux. Does everything I need without a lot of bloat.

Also tried Gentoo. After a week of compiling and futzing with it there were still a few things that did not quite work right (and I've been a UNIX admin for 15 years so I'm pretty good at fixing things). I like the idea behind Gentoo (optimizing for the hardware you have) so I'll probably give it another spin soon.
