  Welcome to Linux From Scratch!
Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own custom Linux system, entirely from source code.
LFS :: Linux From Scratch is the main book, the base from which all other projects are derived.
CLFS :: Cross Linux From Scratch provides the means to cross-compile an LFS system on many types of systems.

 Linux From Scratch
But if you want to learn how a Linux distribution works, how it interacts with all the pieces of free software internally, then you need to lock yourself in a room for a weekend with a copy of Linux From Scratch (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org).
Linux From Scratch or LFS as its popularly known, is actually a book, which takes you through the, pain staking and time consuming but very informative, process of putting together your own Linux distribution.
While traditionally LFS has required an existing Linux distribution to borrow several necessary files and libraries from, the project also has a Live CD (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/livecd/index.html) that includes all the required files and the LFS manual as well.

 Linux From Scratch - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks
This book is an open source attempt at discussing how to create a Linux computer system by starting with a blank hard disk and assembling all the "parts" needed for a Linux distribution such as Debian, Fedora core, or Slackware.
The first item needed is a LINUX boot disk to run FDISK or CFDISK (or you could use a non-destructive partitioning program such as FIPS, QTParted, or Paragon Partition Manager -- DO NOT use Partition Magic, it seems to have lots of trouble understanding Linux partitions).
Mounting a partition means attaching it to the linux filesystem, you don't mouont a device or partition, you mount the filesystem "somewhere" in order to continue building linux.

 How to build your own Linux distribution
Linux, often described as "just a kernel" (an arbitrary definition if ever there were one), presents a core of common functionality and implementations that do not change fundamentally whether the kernel runs on an underpowered Pentium® II machine or on a Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) system.
It has moved beyond the Linux kernel and the device drivers, because to produce a working Linux system, you have to add a complete compiler tool chain, a number of Linux assembler utilities, the glibc system library, system configuration tools, and tools connected to userland shell access.
The LFS family of Linux builds is, in many ways, a method for giving back the power to construct Linux-based operating systems to the people who started it all: the hackers.

Linux has come a long way from the old days when you had to bootstrap it from DOS.
Perhaps, rather than ignoring the version which the document suggests, and using the latest of each package, a safer (yet still thrilling) approach may be to download the latest "unstable" version of the book which usually has the latest versions of nearly all of the packages.
