Advice with Unix for Oracle

Hi,

I am studying for my oracle OCP and have been using Oracle 9i and 10g for several years now however I have only ever used it on a windows platform.

I would like to install Unix on my home PC and install Oracle so i can learn Unix and get familar with the Unix environment.

What level of knowledge should an Oracle OCP professional have of Unix?

Can anyone help me? I dont really want to use a very easy Linux e.g. 'Ubuntu' as I doubt I learn much. I would like to use the same environment large organisations use so I know how to start up Unix, stop and start Oracle services and so on.

What version of Unix do you recommend? Sun Solaris? Can I download this for free as I am only using it for learning purposes?

Any help with the above questions will be useful.

Many thanks

Thanks for your commend.

Can I have Solaris run as a dual boot along side Windows XP?

Also, how easy is it to install Unix?

Kind regards

Colin
