    If you really want to get into the guts of Linux, and you are not afraid of the command line, you should try Gentoo.
    Stage1 if you have a good proc and a lot of ram.

    Gentoo would be a really pro distro (from what I have heard). Slackware is also a good choice.

    i've heard that Arch also falls into that catagory (or one slightly below it)

    Arch would definitely be in that category.

    Gentoo, Arch and Iam sure there are others can be hard to install. But they will be optimized for that system.
