Hi! I just joined this list, so forgive me if this has been sugested or done 
before. I have installed about 4 linux distro's to try and get ALFS to work. 
After 3 gigs of downloading I finaly got Mandrake 8.2 to work, but this got 
me to thinking. Why not create a disto based around nALFS. So Iv decided to 
create my own distro. Basicly I would boot LFS off the cd and via menus 
compile and install all the packages need for a system, posibly including X 
Windows. Im new to this open source world. Can I simply take nALFS and put 
it on a cd with some scripts and create a distro? Downside to a source 
distro, long install because of compile time. Pluses, very very quick to 
upgrade pacages. Simply add the .bz2 file and script. Any sugestions or 
reading material for creating a distro? Also, what is the best way to create 
a kerel that will work on the most hardware, simply say 'y' to every 
question in the kernel config? Thanks and advance for your help!
