Linux is Unix LIKE. It is not Unix. It was based on Minix.

Many Linux distributions come as a live CD so you can try without installing. Also many can be installed along side of Window so you can run both. Make sure your distribution supports all of your hardware.

Every person or group that creates a distribution also makes a how to.

On top of that there may be a million or so web pages devoted to how to install linux.


Why do you want to redo all of that?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
