LFS Project tries to bring rolling your own distro to the masses

The Linux From Scratch project has an interesting write up on rolling your own distro, and it seems pretty complete. It takes you through compiling the basic stuff, then moves on to installing server daemons and graphical front ends. They even provide a LiveCD with all of the necesary tools and source code so you can just get started. Go check it out at: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/

EDIT: For those of you that don’t quite want to compile your entire distro I also ran across this. Its an online based LiveCD generator, so you can make your own customized distro in a few minutes.
