Hello everybody! =)
First of all, forgive me if my message sounds very newbie to you. I'm really a newbie to Linux and I hope you will understand.
I have my first installed Linux Mandrake 8.1 dual booted with M$ Win98 since last 3 weeks ago. And I'm just wondering if it would be possible for me to develop my own distro based on what packages I only need. Actually, I still don't know yet in any programming languages especially that are in Linux. My friend told me that it's better if I know Perl programming first before I pursue my plan. Again, is it possible to develop my own distro eventhough I don't know anything about programming?
All I want is to have my own distro that will run on my i686 Intel Pentium III 800 Mhz with 512MB SDRAM and 20GB Seagate Barraccuda 7200 RPM IDE HDD. And I want it to copy in a CD-ROM and make it bootable just like M$ Win98 and my Linux Mandrake 8.1. Also, during the installation I want it to automatically set a different partitions. I want it to be a very newbie friendly distro with a very minimal packages that will only suit to a simple desktop Linux operating system.
By the way, I'm still in my 3rd year high school and I'm having fun with the Open Source Softwares.
I hope you will have enough patience in answering my inquiries. Your advice will be a great help for me.
Thank you very much...
Hail, Linux! =)
Can you recommend some sites where I can download FREE e-books on Perl and Shell programming? =)
