My advice on this is the same as always. Choose a problem you want to solve, and choose a path that lets you solve that problem.

If you want to learn Linux start with terminal, installing, uninstalling, copying, making, folders, compiling software all with terminal then move onto bash, then create your own conky http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/530620/can-clamav-be-used-with-precise-puppy-571/page-3#entry3371314

 

once you are ok with doing that sort of stuff it will make the rest easier , I do not know how much you know about Linux but untill you get a grip on the basics the rest wont really make sense. I just love those little Ahhh moments when I discover something new that I can do with terminal. Im on the compile from source thing atm and editing stuff thru geany, I back up the original file then mess with the config file because I can, I even made my own puppy linux http://puppylinux.org/wikka/remastering, And am loving it, and this has given me a better understanding not just of Linux ( Puppy & Kubuntu) but of my pc and a new way of doing stuff eg.

OMG I have crossed over to the GEEK side

 

Like I said get to know Linux and how it interacts with your pc hardware  well and the rest will fall into place.
