I second using Slackware to learn from. I'm a big slackware fan.
However, once you feel pretty comfortable with at least one of the major
distros, I would suggest you learn in more depth by building your own distro
with Linux From Scratch:
you don't have to build a complete desktop or server distro that way (at least
not to start) - it would be instructive to build a boot/root floppy pair that
would run off a ramdisk the way most installers do.
