I would first start with just going through the LFS book, and learning
how the system is put together. Doing all the commands manually is a 
great way to learn what is going on. After you get through the book,
ALFS won't seem as big, obnoxious, well maybe it will, and you might
even have ideas of how to modify it for your needs... Being new to 
Linux and LFS though, I would start with the LFS book first.

Have fun.
