Although LFS is meant to teach, the skill sets are not the same. In LFS
we are discussing building packages and not really administrating a
system. For instance, we use no package manager and we expect a user to
have basic Linux knowledge, especially being comfortable running Bash
from the command line.
If you want to self-teach, I recommend 'Running Linux'
Even though it's a bit old, it still covers the basics. You might want
to explore http://www.tldp.org/.
I'm sure others will have suggestions.
