can i just suggest something?

for practising, it can be good (if you don't have a unix setup yourself, or you just want to try a different "flavour") to get a shell account, and use a secure telnetting program to login to it. I have a couple of such accounts, and my favourite is Grex, at (you get to choose between bash, korn, C shells et c, on a SunOS system, and they let you use lynx, and hundreds of other standard unix utilities, they also have a huge and thriving online bulletin board for members)
Go and set up an account there, and you can telnet in using ssh or similar program. I use PuTtyTel for windows and NiftyTelnet on a mac, when i'm not running linux.

hope i'm not just mouthing off here and that this is actually relevant!

Difficulty: Easy
Generally speaking, Unix systems are commercial, closed source and propriety operating systems so it is expensive to customize for supercomputing projects. Linux, on the other hand, is free and easier to customize.
