Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Second, If I annoyed anybody, it was not my intent to do it, so, if i annoyed you, i am sorry for that,
Third, If i write like this it is ment to be funny, not so serve as any form of characterization of my age or mental development status, in Japan we refer to this form of expression as kawaii, meaning cute, cool, funny, but by no means less repectfull or serious.
EDIT: Well back to topic How does one make this, creating an installable BLFS...?
But, if you patch your kernel,etc for aufs,squashfs,lzma and use Linux Live Scripts on it
it will create a distro from your installed system that runs just like Slax, with persistency,etc off cd/usb/hdd
what kernel version does your BLFS install run??
I am currently compiling slack 12.2's 184.108.40.206 kernel and patching
LinuxLiveScripts has premade 220.127.116.11 kernel too
tell me what kernel your runinng
As for installing it
you would need to "make" a install script/py,etc
or modify someone elses
like Vector's Lite Live Final, which is kinda made with LinuxLiveScritps but they added stuff
Vector Lite Live lets you remaster your installed system
... her look was like... remember the traction beam of Death Star in star wars...? no escape...
hahahah....was just curious how your build has been going. it would seem that both of you are much more advanced than i am; however, i have been considering building my own install as well. was just wondering if the performance gain was that great. also, in regards to tracking down deps for programs...its alot of work once you go out on your own with a custom build isnt it?
