Question knoppix

yes, i saw knoppix but as i am willing to learn run minimalistic linux projects I wish i could design a simple system in order to be able to venture myself in other projects and help develop minamilistic linux os's

any person can suggest to me what i can do for both to learn profecently and for the fact to be able to create and installation cd for the os to be ported to other IBM compatible systems

If you jsut want it to workm you could install without X or any other graphical stuff.

Or, you could install LFS and learn like you want. If you want to really build your own stuff, check out LFS or any other from scratch project (maybe ven ROCK)

You might want to check out linux-live. It's a set of scripts and tools which allow you to make a Knoppix-like bootable disc out of any distro you choose, even (dare I say it) Redhat ;-)

Enjoy!

any help like lfs to use kernels of redhat??? what do you mean by this? or maybe... why not just using the kernel you want, like 2.4.22 or if you like, the latest 2.6.5 (soon to be 2.6.6)???
