about UNIX? original version?

sorry for my English

We'll report about Unix in my school, for Operating Systems subject...
with Installation demo....

I'm wondering if System V, which is from original developers AT&T still exist
and downloadable? because I cant find it anywhere...

then i found out that Solaris, MacOS even Linux falls under Unix Version..

i pick Solaris for installation Demo because it is the most widely used Unix Version nowadays .... but there are groups reporting about Solaris,Linux, MacOS already...

So im wondering if System V still exist and compatible with P4 PCs...

there are more, but another one is BSD. I think there are 3 versions of BSD, I think the most used one is freeBSD

but i think we'll stick to solaris since we already passed our documentation about it...

my follow up question....

do anyone know what system v requirements are?
so we can have a proof that even installer of system v still exist,
we cant demonstrate it with hardware nowadays?

( just because System V is the AT&T's standard/original version of UNIX... )
