Distro question (experts, please read)

How exactly could I begin making a distro? Not even a distro, just the most basic form on Linux, with a simple gui with only six buttons (for a touchscreen control panel). I want each of the buttons to run a program in C++. How would I do this? Where would I start? I've got great knowledge of linux/unix commands, and reasonable C++ knowledge.
