LFS

Has anyone tried Linux From Scratch?

I tried it and I actually got halfway through step 3: Building the LFS System, but then I gave up :(
Has anyone actually done it? Just curious to know.

I've used it many years back when creating Linux kiosks. LFS isn't for the novice, or the faint of heart. It is really only useful for a specific set of situations. Most people are better of using an established distribution for their purposes.

This is true. However, at the time I really wanted to know how Linux works more. I found that I was better off getting a book about linux kernel development. Probably I will go back to trying LFS again, but not right now.

If you are interested in reading about the Kernel, I would recommend "Linux Kernel in a Nutshell" and "Understanding the Linux Kernel". They're both O'Reilly books written by kernel devs.

That's the one. Understanding the Linux Kernel. I read some of the book, and it's fantastic. I just need time to read some more :)

It's been on my todo list for a while now, but I want to get internet on my debian box first.
