I always wonder why people assume that being an (future) expert in network security automatically makes you an expert on all things Linux (this question isn't related to anything regarding networks at all), but maybe that's just me.
Anyways, this is how I would do it:
- Install a minimal Debian system (make sure that it really is the absolute minimum). I am not sure if Kali has already switched to Debian 8 as base, so it may be better to use Debian 7 here.
- Get the Kali kernel source package, use the default Kali configuration, except disabling PAE, compile and install it
- Change sources.list to the Kali repositories
- Upgrade the system, make sure that your custom kernel is used before rebooting
- Install what you need from the Kali repositories
- Use it
