Gentoo is for masochists TBH.

Unless you need to compile all of your applications to run on some obscure CPU architecture, you're better off just using a minimalist distro.

ArchLinux is as far as I'd suggest you go unless you just want to frustrate yourself beyond reason trying to figure out how to get Gebtoo to run properly.

Is there a specific type of Linux that would be best suitable for something like this or are they all pretty much just the same?

I got Gentoo to boot, then broke X when I tried to install the proprietary ati drivers. Gave up shortly after.

As for the OP: DSL or puppylinux. I still keep a copy of DSL on a bootable usb drive, and my old eee 4g runs puppeee. Both are good, and impressive for their small sizes and footprints.

Any distro's like Mint or Ubuntu are going to be too bloated to bother trimming their fat for your uses I think.
