Lightweight/fast/stable distro which supports high-end machines?

What is a recommended distro which would support any (large) amount of RAM, best CPU etc.?

Is it possible to run the Kernel without a distro? If so, would that be a good solution, and how would one go about installing and running just the Kernel.?

Would be even better if it could be booted off a disc and stored in RAM..

I don't need any pre-installed apps, or fancy UI..

Thanks for your help :-)
