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.

You don't appear to understand what "Linux from scratch" actually is. it is a distribution that is manually built from source, rather than using an installer. It has nothing to do with redhat, which can't be built from scratch , otherwise it wouldn't be readhat would it?
and if it were possible... step by step instructions? i really really hope that was a joke.
no actually it was not a joke... I don't even know why i want to build linux from scratch when i can't even install my modem drivers for Redhat that are in tar.gz file. I made a post and that post is still going on and it's 3 pages long. So no it's not a joke. haha.
to build Red Hat Linux or any Linux version from scratch it requires you to know so much more then you know. You must know everything there is about computers, networking them, and lotsa programing with C/C++. If you can't even install a modem I suggest you either give up or "eat books", otherwise you'll never ever ever do it! It's like asking to be the president without going to high school, college and so on, it's just impossible!
