freebsd is a unix operating system for PC's.  Go to
www.freebsd.org or www.freebsd.com for information on it.

Linux is a free unix operating system as well.  There are many
different "flavors" of this, including slackware, and redhat,
for example.  All flavors are available free.  The best thing
to do, however, is to go to a computer store and purchase a cd
of these  -- 20 bucks or so will get you good documentation and a program that has had someone check that it works.

If you don't want to pay, then do a search on altavista or some
other search engine for linux and download the source code.  This is not an operation for the faint of heart, however.
