Which Unix OS you want to install ? RH Linux, FreeBSD, SuSe, Mandrake ? It Depends on which OS you want to install. Also i dunt think so there is a need for the Poll on these questions, with no-connection of answers.

if you are very lucking you might be able to find a copy A/UX somewhere, it is pretty rare from what i have seen today. aux is macos on top of unix. it is from like 10 or so years old. i think that www.lowendmac.com has something about i don't know though

I have tried, but I can't find a way. I could delete the thread, but I can't keep the thread while removing the poll.

Note the OP, please do not connect goofy polls with serious questions.
