I use Arch Linux, and a vanilla installation starts out with nothing but a terminal and some basic utilities. Everything beyond that is installed and configured by me.
So I would like to configure my OS how I like, and then wrap it up with some kind of installer so that I can put it on a disk and install it on any machine I want (not just the machine I configured it on – or else I would just make a disk image). If other people would like a copy, that’s great. But mostly I’d just like to have it for myself. It doesn’t have to be a live disk, although that might be nice.
I understand it will probably be kind of difficult, but I’m a technically oriented person and I think it would be fun to figure out. So don’t point me to something like Archbang which is a slightly more fleshed out version of Arch. I want to do it myself.
Where do I start?
