There are various freely available Unix flavors out there.
The most popular ones are Linux (which is Unix-system, yes)
with its different distributions (the most popular here are
Debian under http://www.debian.org/ and RedHat under
http://www.redhat.com/) and the BSD-derivatives (the
most popular here is FreeBSD under http://www.freebsd.org/,
but there are more like OpenBSD and NetBSD which have a
little bit different focus). The best way to start learning Unix
is to take a PC in your company, install one of
those Unix systems and learn Unix by doing.
The installation usually costs you only a few hours
because all of the above systems ship with very
good installation precedures. When you have it
up and running, remember the command "man", it
will be your friend...

My personal recommendation last: FreeBSD or when
you really want Linux and not BSD, then Debian.
