It's good to see someone so overtaken with the power of linux. You have a good goal as do many people who customize their own linux desktops or servers. You should keep moving forward by learning how to change things and from there the rest is downhill.

The best help anyone can give you is to tell you is to read read read.. And then you help yourself.

Many times people have asked me about things and I point them to a document, it's to let them know that I in fact know only what I know by reading that document and if I explain it would I be any more effective than the document that taught me? No.

So if you hear RTFM that means "Read the FUN manual!"

Take a look at LFS or Linux From Scratch - - while it's not exactly what you're looking for it does a very good job of explaining the workload involved in building a Linux Distribution in terms of configuring and building individual packages. It should also give you some insight into the kind of tasks we take for granted when we install an OS/distribution such as Fedora.

You could also take a look at Slax - - which allows you to add additional packages to a rather minimal distribution and then make your own installation disk etc.

Hope it helps
