Every thing is fairly easy to this point and i assume extra device drivers you mean extra non included modules so these could be built for a non running kernel without too much trouble.I'd like to create a GNU/Linux environment from scratch, in effect creating my own personal distribution, for lots of interesting reasons, but mainly to see what's involved and to further my understanding of how everything works. I suppose I'm a purist (masochist?!) at heart.
I imagine the process would generally be:
1) Boot from Live CD to partition the hard drive
2) Download the kernel source & compile it
3) Add in any necessary device drivers
4) Download goodness-knows-how-many basic GNU tools like "ls", "cat",This is where you have to be careful, don't forget all the dependencies such as dynamic libaries, you can look at each commands dependencies individualy using ldd i think.
