    Do you mean you just want a disk with a bootloader on it, like grub or lilo?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I would like to make a CD that will have a basic version of linux load up.

    No bootloaders, just a shell i can make some scripts for to install my own version of linux.

    Have you looked at Damn Small Linux? It's one of the more functional tiny distros (about 50Mb).

    There's also sysresccd, which (if you follow their online instructions) will even let you customize the CD...it's a bit larger, but it is a really powerful rescue cd:
