    Linux from scratch is the way to if you really want to completely build your own.

    http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/

    It's probably the best way to learn about Linux, imho.

    Nope..........BT is based off Slax.............which, in turn, is based off Slackware...........


    Slax is a module based liveCD distro, allowing customisation via modules............

    Read up on it - It may be a good starting point for you

    (Although if you truly want to *completely* build your own distro, then LFS is the way to go)

    These links may also be of help.
    I too am working a LFS but in the past couple of weeks time has been at a real premium.

    These are just some of the articles I have read and found to be informative.
    Good luck

    I can recommend LFS, as well as hardened LFS, that taught me a lot about security
    If video games influenced behavior, we'd all be wandering round darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music...............

    Well I editted all the files you can in the boot folder, I changed 'Slax' to 'Something' in every file you can open.
