the best way to learn Linux is to use linux. With time you will start facing problems (which actually will be opportunity in disguise). Every problem solved will advance your step towards the immense depth of this ocean.

i wouldnt try LFS yet. It would be a very good learning experience but probably be rather frustrating. I would try something simple like ubuntu and just get it up and running. Then start to learn the evironment. Then if you want to go for LFS. You need a base linux installation anyways to do LFS.
look herefor more distros

If you know Unix, you're in. You'll be learning Linux starting at a fairly high level. Debian & Slackware are probably the closest distro's to Unix, and, conveniently, they're also the best supported on these forums.
