Get yourself a copy of FAA Advisory Circulars 120-28C and 120-29.  They
describe the different reduced visibility landing categories,  a means of
achieving operational approval for each category, and required airplane
equipment.  Bear in mind that very few commercial aircraft (as a percent
of the total) are equiped to land in the lower visibility conditions
described in these AC's (CAT III).
