Question Create own distro


I've already heard about Lfs and Gentoo.
But how can I create my own installable distribution?
With Insall Cd, own configuration programs, etc.
I know that this is a really big work, and i'm a newbei, but how can I do this?
Or, please recommend me a distro, that is as powerfull as Slackware, as simple as Mandrake, and (maybe like Redhat) supports the universal places of config files (init, rc.d, ...).
So, please write something!!
Bye-bye!

RE:Create own distro

Hello,

If you want a powerful one, use the KNOPPIX.
It's a boot-cd, with a Gnu/Linux system !!! and a lot of useful softs.

On the KNOPPIX page, you have a re-mastering and a customization how-to ....

The new version use the new kernel 2.6 and the hardware detection is very good.

I recommend you use the distro, try and maybe you'll modify it for your own or for the community.

I think it'll be hard to customize/re-master without any experience.
