Linux Weekly News <http://www.lwn.net> has a list of more distros than I've 
seen elsewhere, and each listing is a link to that distro's home page.  As for 
a GUI web browser, I know Arachne was going to come out for Linux (it's an 
MS-DOS graphic web browser, so it should be fairly small).  I don't know just 
where that is.  Take a look at <http://arachne.browser.org> for info.
