IMHO, the best way to learn UNIX is using it.
I would install on my PC/laptop any Linux distribution and/or Solaris for i386, then I would go to The Linux Home Page at Linux Online (or your favorite GNU/Linux dist Web site) to look for GNU/Linux docs, and to http://docs.sun.com for Solaris docs.
Good luck and welcome to the "dark side" Smilie
