FSO no longer make a distro, but it is used in several others. The closest to 
the old FSO distro would be SHR which also uses OpenEmbedded. The instructions 
at [1] give a quick start guide, but it may be better to use shr-unstable 
instead of shr-testing as it suggests. You should look at some OpenEmbedded 
and/or bitbake tutorials for more information on how the build system works.

You could also use Debian, which is uses as a basis for the Hackable1 and 
QtMoko distros, or OpenWRT [3]
