Link: <https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/diy-build-custom-minimal-linux-distribution-source> https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/diy-build-custom-minimal-linux-distribution-source Are the instructions in this article meant to be executed with ease on Debian 9.5.0 or perhaps easier on other Linux distros? Please advise. Thank you.

The instructions are for building your own distro. They will
work, with minor adaptations, from nearly any existing distro, 
and will produce something which is independent of that distro.

If you are interested in a more complete guide, you should
look at Linux From Scratch. If you are interested in a
customized distro but with real support, you might consider
building a Debian variant instead.
