    you sound like you want Linux not Unix (it's nearly the same anyway)..
    goto www.redhat.com or www.mandrake.com or www.suse.com
    ensure you have a fast connection and a CD burner (if possible)
    and download some iso's

    Have fun!

    IBM and HP both have UNIX systems that they sell, SUNs Solaris is a very powerfull UNIX OS especialy combined with SUN hardware(its what powers this site at the moment)

    If you are looking for a Free UNIX for a regular PC you can try the BSDs wich came from UNIX directly, FreeBSD is very secure and its a good OS.... another UNIX-based OS is Linux, Linux was built to give a free verseion of a UNIX-like OS when UNIX was expensive.

    linuxiso.org is a great place to download iso image files of Linux and FreeBSD .... also search google.com for other UNIX LINUX or BSD OSes

    Any *nix OS is very powerfull for servers and networking and security, you have made a very good choice

    I'd recommend Linux over Solaris (or other 'proper' Unix)
    Linux is fairly easy to start with, Solaris is a hard OS to learn.
    Start with Linux and if you still want to, try an Intel Solaris (still free I think).

    FreeBSD is a good choice if you need it to be low cost. And if Mad read a Unix book and you tell him to get Linux, he's going to ber dissapointed because nothing will be where he expects it to be.

    Keep in mind Linux is viewed as the Windows 2000 of the Unix world. It's pretty and it's simple.....

    Try using www.google.com You'd be amazed at the number of hits you get.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    unix and linux commands are basicly the same (i think). if you just want the to work on a command line environment, dont install the images. i think linux offers an option for the kind of installations you want to have.

    also you can buy the linux/unix cd distributions online. they are "cheap". this is one of the many sites that you can use to buy that stuff:

    http://linuxcentral.com/

    just look under the "linux central cd roms" section on the top.

    hope you find what you are looking for.
