    looking for a small kernal's source


    i'd like to play around with making my own little flavor of linux, but i dont want to start off with any thing big. i'm looking around google right now for source to a kernal hopfully with some instructions and such that will alow me to build a basic os. i just want it to be able to give me a prompt and be able to run some progs and such. i guess this post is a little sketchy. but if any one knows where i can find the source to a small maybe even floppy sized version of linux that would be great.

    Check out www.linuxfromscratch.org. It might be interesting.
    You can also use an old version of Linux, avalible at kernel.org

    Good luck
