Linux Coming from a background of using MS-DOS for about 4 or 5 years exclusively (MS-Dos 4.1 or something) Being new to Linux and *nix in general I thought that I would want to learn from the "ground up". I did not want the bloat of Redhat or Mandrake but wanted something simple where I could learn the "stuff" of the OS.

http://www.sourcemage.org/ If you are really interested in "from the ground up" learning I recommend you try SourceMage. It is somewhat like Gentoo; ie, it is source based but easier to use IMHO and has more packages than you could ever want.
