I took some real thought on this topic my self and i came to the understanding that what's common in distrobutions is they have:
  • built a working linux system on a bootable CD with a kernel that can handle it.
  • built the binaries to support a general system type like i586.
  • packaged them.
    (Slackware uses tgz which is really tar.gz so you can tar and gzip then and it would be the same.)
  • given the bootable CD support for extracting them. (You need to have the programs like tar and gzip installed on the CD.)

Thoughs are the basics as I understand.
