PC Installation

I have a PC with win95 that I want to partition and put some UNIX, prefferably AIX on. How would I do this, are there any good SW partitioning programes, and where do I get a UNIX operating systme.

Aklso, once I have it, how do i install it?

thanks

fdisk should be good to partition your hard-drive.  Then you need an OS loader to have the option of boot to Win95 or Unix.

I would suggest you get Linux to start off with, since every about the type of setup you are looking for is in the Linux Bible (get it at your local Book Stop, Borders, or Barnes & Noble).

Get your feet wet there first, then you will be ready to move on to BSDI or AIX if IBM has a version for x86.  I know they have one for the PowerPC chip....

AIX will probrably cost you some bucks, and Linux is free, so there won't be anything lost if you decide you don't want to go that route (of course a book on Linux and a CD of Linux cost some money, but not much).
