    Cool Linux OS Editing

    I saw verious distributions of ubuntu (UserOS, Kubuntu and so on) and Iwas woundering how to make/edit and release your(my) own distro. P.S please don't tell me that I need to know C++ or Assembly, or even that it's hard and I should never try it (I kind of figured all this out by doing a quick google search). All I want is a half descent guide on how to do that.

    If you need to ask...
    Who was the first that forged the deadly blade?
    Of rugged steel his savage soul was made.

    I would think the best starting point would be Puppy Linux:105MB download
    then if you leave the CD open when you burn the .iso you can add apps etc
    and play around.I have my own Puppy now with Skype Firefox Thunderbird
    Gimp and a few odds and ends and it is 200MB on a live CD and also it is my only OS on my desktop and Laptop.
    23 seconds start up on my desktop.

    I did so and only got these files: boot.cat, boot.msg, help.msg, isolinux.bin, isolinux.cfg, logo.16 and vmlinuz. I tired opening the .bin and only got a duplicate of the file and nothing else will open. How do I edit it?
    p.s what OS where you using?

    I was using Ubuntu before settling on Puppy as it does everything I want and
    is so quick to load.
    Did you burn the .iso file to CD then boot from the CD ?

    No I didn't boot from the disk I just burnt the disk and looked inside it. If I boot from the disk how do I add programs and files etc so they are stil there when I redistribute the disk?
