I find the best way is to:

1. Read all the documentation available in the .tar.gz source packages.
You'll be amazed how much this can teach you.

2. Use http://www.linuxdoc.org/ . This site seems to have all the
"standard" HOWTO's most recent versions and a reasonable search

With just these two resources (and the last LFS 2.2), and not much prior
knowledge about linux, I am running LFS 2.3.6 as my primary system. I'm
running with a USB pacthed 2.2.16 kernel, XFree 4.0.1, WindowMaker, ssh,
sendmail/procmail/mailx, inetd (telnet/ftp), samba, nfs, sound (using an
SBLive) and a bunch of other stuff. The HOWTO's are a goldmine of
information :)
