[Openembedded-users] How do you actually build from your local.conf?

I'm a bit confused trying to figure out exactly how OE works. In my
local.conf I set a DISTRO variable to dictate - I presume - what gets included
in my rootfs.
However according to the OE user manual, to actually start compiling and
create an image I should type "bitbake" followed by an image name.
I don't understand what the difference is between the two. Why am I able to
put DISTRO="angstrom-2008.1" in local.conf and then type "bitbake opie-image"?
What happens then?
All I want to do at the moment is build a kernel with an initrd that contains
busybox. What do I type to achieve that?
