any good book ( sumitabha das 'll be a better choice ) for beginners, a box for practice and your curiosity.

for installation .. there are many step by step guides available on the web. just google it.

but if u are very new to unix .. thn i 'll prefer the installation in the presesance of some1 who knows..

also i suggest u to just install some third party software for practice which offers unix'bility on ur XP box... eg uwin ( google it )

ubuntu has cd images that will not install on your M$ machine but will allow you to scope out Linux in all its radiant beauty =)

cygwin is also an option
