You should first carefully read:
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/mailinglists/info.shtml Now you will
know where to look for help (not here ;).  Next, learn how to post to
the mailing lists at:  http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/~gimli/lfsml.html
Next, read the faq:  http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/  Don't worry
if some of the faq doesn't make sense now.  Now read the intro:
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/intro.shtml

> Are the docs complete?

I like to think so.  You can judge for your self though; view the book @
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/view/3.2/

>  Any advice on hardware platform?

x86 is certainly the most common.  Some people have been successful on a
variety of other platforms including Sparc, m68k, PPC, S/390, MIPS, and
Alpha.  On other than x86 you will probably need to consult the mailing
list archives to solve problems.

>  Am I crazy for considering this?

Maybe, but have fun regardless.

Cheers,
