I prefer Jolt Cola. Much cheaper. :)
I don't have the luxury of recompiling everything for the fun of it, unfortunately. At best, I scan and defrag my hard drive, and do a little optimizing with my System Mechanic program.
Shame on me huh?
If the world should blow itself up,the last audible voice would be an expert saying it can't be done

I think the main point of Linux From Scratch (lfs) is to make a custom system. It's so you can compile everything to be optimized for your processor. I think you have a good point though. There should be something similar that teaches how to make a distribution. Maybe you can write one after you're done? :-)

Would there be anything I could do to help? I need to try compiling my system and totally learn how it works first. I think I might add another partition to my hard drive to test on. Do you think that would work? I can add another partition to lilo and keep what I already have. Do you think that is a good or bad idea?

I just went out and bought three pretty crap old and one half decent PCs at an ex government auction and it is one of the best investments I have ever done. I no longer have to worry about stuffing up my windows partitions or active windows environments playing havoc with my boot flags occasionally. It has made it a hell of a lot easier to work with linux in a less constrained environment. Not that I didn't have fun occasionally buggering up my installations, and then having to madly look through my room for how my partitions used to be set up, (before I, err, removed them without checking for important docs first):-)
Linux, W2k, Apache, MySQL, Oracle...They are all my bitches now.
Thank god apples aren't coconuts - Isaac could've been hurt.

Need to try this one day, but I don't even have the source code for my Linux (SuSE), but I think you can get it with YaST...
I also want to try to make a LFS system of my own, but I would prefer a seperate computer to do it on, so if it messes up then I can just start again. I used to have this Cyrix 166 for playing about with but my dad sold it :(
