Choosing distribution new to the world of Linux

Hello

For some time i have been considering learning Linux. The problem is choosing a distribution, but which one to pick? I want to really learn how to install it from scratch. An installation made up by hitting next, next and next and then the GUI is up and you are able to surf on Firefox is not what im looking for. Sure i am a newbie but i want to trial and error to learn.

The distributions i know of is, but im not sure any of them meet my requirements?

Gentoo
FreeBSD
Fedora
Opensuse
Ubuntu
Debian

Best Regards
Shama
