Does a distribution exist (and if so what would it be called) that can be put on a USB flash drive (or floppy if small enough) that, instead of booting up on that device, uses a file system that DOS or Windows can read?

"Booting" Linux would consists of running an .exe (from DOS or Windows) that "becomes" Linux and then forgets completely about DOS or Windows until the Linux OS ends and DOS or Windows is rebooted.

At that point, any file created while in Linux can be read by DOS or Windows.

Would this type be called a "loop" type of Linux?

this kind of distro exist... it worked with loadlin boot loader or something. If you don't have dos, maybe freedos could do it.

I'm sorry if I'm not specific, I just don't remember an exact distro that can do that.

Yeah, you're right, ZipSlack is the way to go.

Also, if you need more stuff, you can always install the "missing" packages from the current slackware version. Cool

Definetly, Chaudhuri was right, ZipSlack is what you're looking for Cool
