Personally, I don't mind dual booting, but I'm a bit lazy to re-partition my HD, so the best solution at the moment is to use VirtualBox.

So, I'm looking for the minimum distro with gcc included (just for coding and some shell scripting).

Any ideas?

LFS -min (no source tarballs & X Window) is pretty nice. It does have gcc. I don't know how to install it yet.

why not DSL (Damn Small Linux) with TCC (Tiny C Compiler)

one reason i don't mainly use TCC is because it won't do C++

I think there was one called tiny core or something like that, but it might not have gcc. It was started by one of the guys who worked on DSL.

DSL looks like an interresting option.
if you want GCC, replace TCC by GCC and that's all!

Yes, DSL does have gcc (v3, BTW)

I think I got 3 candidates: PuppyLinux, Zenwalk, and Gentoo.
Sure, you need to install GCC yourself.

I'll see which one is the easiest.

PuppyLinux is under 100 MB, and the devx*.sfs is like 70 MB. I know that's not *that* small, but that's all I know of (esp. if you want C++ support). Ubuntu has C (installed) and C++ (not installed but available) on the liveCD, but that's like 650 MB. It's true, though, most others don't put a compiler there by default. (Heck, if you really wanted, you could probably download FreeDOS + DJGPP, that'd be the smallest option, but I suspect you want more Linux-specific only.)
