 	The best place to start is at each of the listed OS's you sent to. 
Each website has tons of docs/link that can give you info from how to 
distribute down to each of the OS's copyright statements.

 	That is by far the best and easiest place to start. The hard pard 
will be to format it to suit your purposes.

Good luck.

Best regards,

In order for something to become clean, something
else must become dirty.
... but you can get everything dirty without getting
anything clean.
