How to start my own distro?
I know, it's kind of a weird question to ask in the newbies forum and i guess it's kind of asking to get flamed type of a question, but I'm serious.
I'm thinking about creating my own distro just to learn how it's done.
the must common answer would probbaly be "go to linux from scratch" but i looked into it and i don't want to start from scratch and i don't want to create a live cd like slax.
i'm thinking more about taking some distro (fedora, ubuntu, whatever) and modify it.
but i have no clue what's to do first.
what i want to do is change messages in the install process, maybe change the disk partition program, have my favorite packages installed, stuff like that.
any reference material and suggestions will be welcomed.
