I would also like to hear from people who have experience using Linux together with NetBSD or OpenBSD.

Arch Linux for DIY Users

You can build Linux from scratch with Linux from Scratch or compile your own set of packages with Gentoo. But if you want a distro that teaches you the basics of Linux as you set it up; is well documented, lightweight, and zippy; and has a dependency-resolving packaging system, you need Arch Linux.
