Help Building Distro

I am an avid user of Topologilinux ( ) a special version of linux based off of Slackware that runs off an image file on your ntsf partition, so you have a regular linux system (no, its not an emulator, it boots into linux) without repartitioning. Recently I read an article about how a guy was able to create a Debian version of this:
on his machine. Others, myself included, would like to try this out, but aren't quite sure if we can perform all the operations that he did to create his custom install. As mentioned in the link he said that he doesn't know how to create a distrobution, would anyone here be able to help out?

Try looking up and playing around with Linux from Scratch.

It's quite fun.
