To be able to boot, you need:
. a bootloader
. a kernel
. an initrd image
. a filesystem
What initrd/init is depends on what you want the system to do,
it can be anything from a static binary application to the full
blown sysv init.

Either you install "as usual" and then remove whatever you can or
you asseble everything from scratch.
PS. please don't use "r" for "are", I first thought you wanted R,
a statistical computing language and environment.
