Gentoo ain't that difficult for newbies, as long as they can read and follow
some instructions, as the hard part is the installation, after that most
things works quite simply, but of course installing new software and upgrades
takes a lot longer time as that has to be compiled. But still I wouldn't
recommend Gentoo for a new Linux user.
LSF is another matter, but can be managed by following the LFS howto and BLFS
howto, but it's nothing I would recommend for more experienced users, as you
are kind of left to your own to keep track of which of your software has
security problems and serious bugs and needs to be updated.
