I recommend installing Unix to actual hardware if you can afford it (an old machine works fine) as working with vmware can be non intuitive for someone just starting out.  Otherwise, Freebsd is a great suggestion.

Another option - for a free unix OS that also has commercial value outside of the web tier you could do a lot worse than Solaris 10 or, if you're looking for something with a more Linux-type feel, OpenSolaris.

http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/

Excellent documentation resource for Solaris 10 (mostly applicable to OpenSolaris too) here:

http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/prod/solaris.10

Check out the User, Release and Installation and System Administrator collections. Additional documentation specific to OpenSolaris can be found here:
