I agree with st8ofmi9d,
there are tons of examples on the wiki and forums. And for sure, if you are newby on hardware, or linux, I would also recomend some of the preconfigured options you have been given.
Eitherways, If you are willing to install your own system (wich I recomend for the fun of it), you also should be prepared for some headaches with unsuported components.
And finally, do some digging in the forums/wiki, that's where I started, and after somes days/weeks of reading, I started my first core.
