INstalling a unix i suggest *bsd like & from the console you will learn the basic command
with man dedication & patient will help you more then books sometimes
I prefer and old real book than online or console book but if you're young maybe you're used
to read on the terminal

If you want to have something to experiment on without partitioning, or giving up the os you're used to you should take a look at knoppix. It is a linux distro that boots off a cd. All you do is download the iso, burn it to a cd, and then restart with the cd in the drive.
It contains a the linux kernel and even kde and xmms for your multimedia pleasure.
This is where I got my first real taste of linux and I've never looked back.
To download the iso go to http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html and scroll down about 2/3 of the page to a table of places hosting the file

Now everything seems to be reversing, And it\'s worsening!
