I've got a basic understanding of how things startup.  Use of init or
/linuxrc and shell scripts, etc.  I don't have the binaries and want to
be able to compile the binaries from the sources.

I need to know what packages I NEED and where to find the sources for
them.  RedHat and Debian supply all the sources for the releases.  I
have been to the LinuxPPC mirror and also found RPM sources.  I am
currently looking at these these packages are put together by the
vendors and they must get the sources from somewhere else.  eg. where is
the orignal site for "mount" ?  I prefer to use a tarball than some
proprietry distribution package.
