For networking you might want to install FreeBSD rather than
Linux. There's a great deal you can learn that's independent of
networking, and setting up a small network connected to your pc
may be financially reasonable if you've got another computer
or two around, even a laptop with a pcmcia slot. You can experiment,
then, with the tools such as samba for NT-UNIX networks. I think
installing at home is an excellent idea.
