256MB is quite a squeeze for carrying your own environment. You may want to 
use a 1/2GB flash memory for such purposes. AFAIK, no distro ships with 
squeakvm in it and the ones in the public repositories are pretty dated :-(.

It is easier if you carry the OS ISO (e.g. MEPIS 7), VM and images on a single 
chip and boot a system off the ISO image. Carry a live CD as a backup for 
those cases where machines can't boot through USB.
