Don't mind Peter, he's renowned as the LUG curmudgeon!
But with regard to learning Linux, there is no "correct way" - apart
from, from each individual's perspective, probably the way *they* did it!
In the end you've got to plot your own course - but having a specific
project will make it more enjoyable, and if you're like me, you'll find
it easier to learn things when you know they have a use, or carry you
forward towards your goal!
A media server is quite a good choice because it's a *bit* technical,
and you'll get some long-lasting, concrete results at the end. A hint
here is that there are plenty of "howto" docs on the web that give you
all the steps to achieve certain set-ups. You can follow one of them
blindly, or you can investigate each command or configuration setting
one at a time to find out what they do, of course bearing in mind that
there are some malicious ones out there, so the latter is really the
only sane route!
We're always here on the list to help out/advise/bitch about the best
