Linux From Scratch

Another compile-it-yourslef distro that I've looked into is Gentoo Linux.  It 
has 3 different 'stages' of install.  One is fully complied form source.  It 
comes as a bootable iso cd image, 16mb of scripts and sources etc. then it 
downloads the sources it needs.  The other image is a 135mb iso image which 
has the other 2 stages on it.  These are partly and mostly pre-compiled 
stages.  Also each stage is downloadable build tarballs
