We've been installing Gentoo Linux on one of our servers. You do it all manually from the command line, right down to compiling your own kernel and editing arcane system files such as /etc/fstab by hand.

Not quite as user friendly as Ubuntu, where you just bung in the CD, make yourself a coffee, and let the computer do the rest, but infinitely more fun :)
