The book provides links, and the websites of the packages will provide 
links to patches. If you want your hand held this much, you might as 
well get Ubuntu and use it for your Linux needs. Or, if you want to have 
an original system, go make a processor with a custom instruction set 
and write your own programming languages, then make the programs you 
need for a running system.

Either way, we are not here to hold your hand and baby you through the 
process of building a system. We are here to give solutions to questions 
when you've exhausted Google and every forum that has a chance of 
answering the question.
