It should feel very familiar to the people who at least once have
compiled a Linux kernel.. 

Run "make menuconfig" in the root dir, select whatever you need to, then
run "make", and it will generate whichever you ask it to from the menu

It can generate everything as a Ext3 FS image(other rootfs formats may
be useful too), which you can just dd to your disk and grow it using
gparted until it fills it..

Here's the whole documentation, if you won't be satisfied with the two
commands I wrote before: http://buildroot.uclibc.org/buildroot.html
