creating custom linux distro:confused: :confused: :confused:

Hi, i'm a newbie to linux n jjuz started an interest for linux last week....i was getting fed up with Windows and its stupid spyware ,virus problems...well, since last week , i've been reading and about all sorts of stuff a newbie has to...now i've got a small grasp on using fedora. i'm using fedora core 3.

now , this is my problem. I'm planning to make a cyber cafe client system for my final year project . For that purpose, i want to make a custom distribution of linux based on kernel 2.6 . Now, there are many websites that guides on custom building a kernel but what i want is " how to make a distribution cd with custom softwares( i plan to include some software rpms and a java software i created as the systems UI) . how do i make the required files so that i can burn em in CD to be installed ? some thing like feather linux but i will be installing it not running it as a liveCD. The other softwares i've included also must be installed together with the OS so that it can be used as a cc system.

If anybody can poin me to a helpful website or provide assistance, i would be grateful.

this web site gives all the details, BUT, this is very in depth

Read through this article first. although it says how to create a updated version of FC3, The principle there is the same.

Thanks man, this is really helpful. This guide is what i've been looking for for my project. But ,llet me see, i rebuild the kernel from scratch first,then add the software and dependancies. Then once everything is complete, i create the ISO images as instructed. Right?
