TeTeX and LyX sufficient for using LaTeX?


I'm interested in learning LaTeX because I plan on participating in USAMTS. Solutions in LaTeX are strongly encouraged.

Is TeTeX and LyX enough for me to start producing documents in LaTeX?

Try to make a simple LaTeX source file and then do
Code:
latex whatever.tex
replace "latex" with "pslatex" or "pdflatex" for PS or PDF output

Lexical scanner?

So, I unzipped the tetex-src-3.0 file and did "./configure."

Code:
configure: error: no working lexical scanner (lex/flex) found
So, what does this mean?
