So I bought a 4gb drive to put in some flavor of lite-linux or maybe that BAMT. Is the 4gb sufficient?

I'm asking because the block is ~8gb but someone said you don't need the whole block for pool mining. Is that correct?

I need to do more reading on the software side of this.

4GB is sufficient for Ubuntu versions, you will have to liveboot, then follow this guide.

Yes 4 should be fine for a Linux distro or for BAMT. And yes if you are pool mining then you won't need to download the block as the pool is handling that. Just be aware of that if you ever want to switch to solo mining.  And in that case if you do, BAMT will not work because it only uses the amout it needs to install and run and then makes the rest of the drive unusable.
