Is there a beginners guide to build root?

I am cross compiling for an EPIA-ml.  It has 1G RAM and 1G Flash (PCI).

I would like it to boot with grub.  Kernel with initramfs (not 100% sure 
how the initramfs comes into play).  Mount/chroot the flash partition as 

I seem to be compiling everything fine, but I do not know what I need to 
do with the binaries to get the system up and running.

Once I get it up and running I'll begin shrinking the kernel and 
adding/removing apps.

Thanks in advance!
