I'd start off with Ubuntu, just to learn the very basics of navigating a terminal and other neccesary things, then I'd move on to Fedora, SuSe, Slackware, Debian, or any number of other more "full-featured" distros that will give you more flexability than Ubuntu, but still be fairly easy to get running and forgiving if you mess something up. Finaly, it comes to install FreeBSD or Gentoo, niether of which I have even come close to mastering, but are wicked-fast and totaly customizable.
