Misty watercolor memories .... 

Or, if your prefer ... Those were the days ...

Used to build my own all the time. That was back before the kernel had
all the nifty auto-detect things in it for your CPU type and other mobo
features. I finally quit doing it when I switched from Fedora to Ubuntu.

Actually, though to some it might seem daunting, it really was easier
than doing an RSX-11M+ Sysgen, for example. Once I got the hang of it, it
became pretty routine, though there was the occassional glitch.
