I know a wee bit about linux, So forgive my ignorance>

The terminal commands are consistent in all linux flavors, yah?

So Debian / Redhat offer server plugins, like DNS and an Active Direcotry or LDAP above and beyond Ubuntu?

I guess I am asking why Debian or Red Hat would be your choice for the learning platform.

the difference debian and redhat between are for the most the package configuration.
debian,ubuntu,... use apt-get (aptitude)
redhat,centos,fedora use yum

both distribution are very good fyi centos is the free copy of redhat.
i think the best distribution will be the one where you get the most information
