Go to http://www.sco.com/offers/

you can get the "free SCO" license and the CD for $49 (£32) that not
only will give you all the documentation, as well as the operating system it self.

You can also try Linux, as this is much alike Unix, although not "exactly the same".

I did not say that www.sco.com had the info for download.
They have the complete set of manual available for online viewing.
You can open one at the time and print them. (take a few weeks off).
The best is, as I said, to buy the CD.

If you are interested, you can also try Linux in
But as I also said, this is not UNIX.

In this link you can find more info about Unix.

If you have more usefull links like from start to finish, some sort of a book online to learn unix, that would be great, if not, to bad. Let me know, I'll give you the points anyway.

Not on top of my head.
You can always do a search in the Web, and also go the the main Unix manufacturers, like Unisys and Sun and IBM (AIX), and see if they have anything more like what you want.

I have to say that if you are just trying to learn then you might be better by going to Linux, as this has a lot of HowTow's, and will serve as basis for Unix.
And although you can download it, you should consider buying it, or if possible to get one of the CD's that are available with some magazines.
