Smallest Linux Webserver Distro

I have several older thinclients with 512MB RAM and 512MB HD/Memory Card. I would like to find a distro that would easily translate into a webserver for these. If I can get them functioning I will get a bigger card. I am a linux gui noob... I do understand basics of how to use the terminal and am a quick learner. If you suggest a distro, please be familiar with its install and I will start another thread/question on step by step for install....

I will be using a CD to install this...

Thanks
Russ

but I have to admit that I did not apply your metrics to find the "smallest", please do yourself ;-)
