My Own Linux Distro?

With the proliferation of bootable Linux distros lately, it seems like I could have my own distribution if I wanted to. And given that I’m basically not happy with any of the ones I’ve found so far, I am so tempted to take one and modify it to my liking.

Basically, all I’m looking for is something along the lines of Damn Small Linux that’s basically a “web client.” That means it has Firebird, Flash, a PDF viewer, a graphic viewer, maybe a text editor or two, and not a whole lot else, and I want it on a bootable USB Flash device. I think I can strip out what I don’t need out of DSL and keep it under 50mb, maybe I can’t.
