@Kruscher, at this time, the way to create an unsupported distribution is to use the instructions we've outlined in our Install a Custom Distribution on a Linode guide.

I've also made sure to add your request for Flatcar Container Linux to our internal tracker for future consideration.

I've come up with a method for installing Flatcar that you might find useful:


It takes advantage of the rescue image Linode provides to bootstrap Flatcar onto a new node.
