You can also try SUSE Studio, a webapp that lets you customize what's included in a SUSE distribution.  It may take a day or two to get an account with these guys, but they're worth it.

I knew of a few others that did this, but I'm forgetting the names.  I'll amend this post if I think of another one.

Slax has a similar web app where you can choose the modules that are included:

Question: Why?

What will your new operating system do differently (preferably better) than the existing ones? If you can't answer that, you will probably learn as much or more by learning to work with one of those existing systems.

There's a book that explains how to create a simple OS called Minix.  Google minix and you should find it.
