aos_live.iso (in case you do not have a system to build from, includes instructions)
To install AOS:
You can pass the flag -h or --help to the buildscript to get a complete list of supported options.
Some neat options are:
The above instructions can of course be tweaked, for example the second and third steps can be skipped entirely if you just want a test environment to chroot into.
If you pass -i or --noninteractive to the buildscript you won't have to configure the kernel in step 5.
If you're doing the build as root (not really recommended) you don't need to do step 6 as it has to do with file ownership and permissions which will already be correct then.
If you already have a bootloader or only plan to chroot into the environment you can skip step 7.
For installing additional packages once booted into AOS you can look up build instructions in the BuildWiki. If you're lazy you can use the wiki2shell script to get the instructions ready as shellscripts.
Building from liveCD
If you wish to build AOS from a liveCD, remember that files on liveCD systems are normally stored in RAM which is limited and probably can't hold all the files required for the build (not counting the root directory where a partition should be mounted).
To overcome this problem you can instead create a 'build' directory within the partition (where it's mounted doesn't matter here), and within 'build' symlink 'root' to '..' (parent directory)
That way all the files will be on the harddrive instead of in RAM, and when the build is finished you can erase the 'build' directory.
