Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it's very time consuming process to type each and every command!!!
If that's a problem, maybe LFS/BLFS isn't for you. Choosing to use something like LFS or Slackware or Gentoo is going to require more of your time to maintain the system. You should go into it with eyes wide open.
That said, I'll second all of druuna's advice. Also, if you built LFS in a virtual machine, you don't even need to install GPM and links on LFS as you can use your host machine's browser.
Are you sure about that, 'cause I seriously doubt that.
i meant from my host os that is windows seven, vmware tools should be installed.
Too my knowledge the vmware tools make life a bit easier/smoother when interacting between (vmware)host and (vmware)client. The vmware tools aren't needed on LFS (I even doubt if you could install them at this stage).
I've regularly installed LFS using a virtual machine and I never install/need the vmtools (depending on what I want to do I do install them when (B)LFS is installed).
