Not possible, i've only stripped down an LFS build to less then 200MB,
you can get away with more if you take away /usr/src/linux (which is a
good ~84MB) (strip down, i mean w/o taking out packages from the Book,
just by stripping binaries/libraries)

I would suggest Debian, a base install is 60MB (my memory may be off :)
and you can add packages easy enough with apt-get.
