Question Unix on Intel?

I'd like to install some type of UNIX on an Intel PC. Are there any versions of UNIX that will work with this? Is this even possible? Or will I need an HP or DEC Alpha unit to do this?

Thanks!

There's also:

FreeBSD www.freebsd.org
NetBSD www.netbsd.org
OpenBSD www.openbsd.org
Linux Mandrake www.linux-mandrake.com
Turbo Linux www.turbolinux.com
Suse www.suse.com

Linux-mandrake is a good choice if you're just converting from windows as it provides a good GUI installer and alot of GUI apps to administer the OS.

the *BSDs are known for being very stable, even more so than linux, however they tend to be harder to administer for newbies as they don't have the fancy GUI apps.
