this task is quite easy, but complex enough to daunt brave soles who venture here.
In few lines:
Install ubuntu (say 10.04 because that seems to have least problems with BitBake etc)
Create a bootable USB stick from the menu
use this to get what you want https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch
If those instructions are too brief (a) you are going to struggle to do this task (b) understanding and doing this will be the best learning experience you can get.
Enjoy, have fun because the road ahead is rocky and hard and without doubt paved with failures
I don't want to be pessimistic, but I think it would be an error to let you believe that it will be easy and the failure is your fault.
