Linux from the ground up


Is there a resource out there (in cyber space or wherever) that will help you design a linux system from the ground up?

I am starting to get the idea from reading about different distros and such that no one distro ever gives you exactly what youre looking for...

actually its not so hard. if you know the basics as it seems you do, the instructions and book are very good and easy to understand and its fairly not that hard to do or accomplish.

Following the LFS book isn't hard at all. The real test comes when you're staring at a freshly booted command line. If you don't know how Linux works on a modest level you're going to spend a while reading plenty of docs before you'll be able to do anything with your system.
