Good Source Install Article

I have been looking for a good "Install from source" article that explains what you need to do and what happens when you are compiling and all that good stuff.

Anyways, I while looking around for stuff like this, I found this article

It is really good, very simple and not to long, makes me feel convident that when I get home I will be able to install from source after a few tries.

Also found this article, have not read it yet, but wanted to post it

If you feel like it, and know some good sites related to this topic, please feel free to post them here, might reduce some install questions from us noobs.
