Hi, I was wondering if I could essentially have a blank Linux so nothing but the basic file functions (ls, cd, mkdir...obviously...) then build it up with my own bash and programs. I guess what I am trying to do is my own personal distro. I will run it through Q, a processor emulator.

So...

1) Can the kernel stand alone as an empty os
2) How on earth would I install it? Any tips at all would be greatly appreciated.

This is exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much.
I don't know why I could not find it on Google.

I cant wait to get it running :D

Thanks again, Wolfy87.
