Minimal Linux Live is a set of Linux shell scripts which automatically build minimal Live Linux OS based on Linux kernel and BusyBox. All necessary source codes are automatically downloaded and all build operations are fully encapsulated in the scripts.

Minimal Linux Live is probably the best place to start if you are trying to build small live Linux OS entirely from sources. The provided shell scripts are very well organized and they can easily be modified or upgraded to suit more specific needs. The project aims at the bare minimum that you need in order to build very small, yet fully functional live Linux OS, which means that the final live CD image is very small (less than 10MB).

The author of the project also provides a document called The DAO of Minimal Linux Live which explains in details the inner structure of the build scripts, the overall process of building small live Linux OS and ways to improve the generated bootable ISO image even further.

Here are few screenshots:
