LFS really is what it says; you have to build (compile) it from src.
Definitely the hard way to learn unless you really want to do it that way.
Normally I suggest trying a few of the pre-built distros to start with eg any of top 10 at www.distrowatch.com
Note that all have access to the cmd line as well as a GUI
Here are some good links
- good Linux tutorial, mostly at cmd line
- how to use bash, the default cmd line lang
- a lot(!) of free to read online books/manuals/howtos for various distros
