How do I build an embedded Linux Device?


I'm not sure if there are any embedded Linux folks hear but I have few questions on building a small Linux computer. If I wanted to build a small Linux computer (Hand held device) what hardware should I consider for this project? Should I consider an electronics kit for this project? What is the best Linux destro to use for embedded hardware? Is there any books or online materials that can be recommended for learning more about running Linux on embedded devices?

Thanks

Rob
