We did..you go to that page, and start reading. That page has full descriptions, a BOOK on how to get started, software, and samples. Can't give you much more of a 'start' than that...

Before starting Linux From Scratch make sure that you have the required knowledge, mentioned on the prerequisites page, otherwise LFS may be to complicated to understand and will only be a copy&paste experience.

You don't need specific knowledge about the Linux kernel, but you should know how to compile one.
Start with reading what is mentioned on the prerequisites site I linked to, if you have questions about a specific topic just have a look at LQ (and other sites on the net) if there is an answer to your questions. If not just open a new thread and ask, after all that is what LQ is for.
