Linux from scratch really isn't a distribution. It is an eBook. This book, "Linux From Scratch" is a step by step procedure that will actually build a linux distro on your computer. It sounds difficult but the step by step directions are clear and fairly easy to follow. I have built several version of LFS over the last five years of so. LFS is kept up to date by Gerard Beekums and a group of volunteers. A new and updated version of the book is produced once or twice a year. Going trough the book is quite a learning experience. It will really show you the ins and outs of Linux. There is even another version of the book that will take you beyond the basic linux build if desired.

It is worth the effort, all you need is a little time and computer with just about any modern Linux distro and a little space you can partition off on your hard drive.
