Hacnslash: There are a bunch of 'unix-like' distributions of Linux and BSD that'll run from a floppy. Like I mentioned before I don't remember what is considered actual UNIX because I've only used (and really cared about) the free variants.

When you sign up you can get access to like 60+ machines. You telnet in I think. You don't have access to the outside net but you can upload anything you want to compile it via ftp. They have ia64 machines running linux, some RISC systems running HP-UX and all kinds of stuff!

Linus Torvalds started. He started with Minix a Unix-look-alike operating system that runs on PCs. He started by trying to make Minix better.
If you really want to get into UNIX I think this is where you should start.
It's all free for the download I thing it will install on a 286
MINIX is a free UNIX clone that is available with all the source code. Due to its small size, microkernel-based design, and ample documentation, it is well suited to people who want to run a UNIX-like system on their personal computer and learn about how such systems work inside.
I hope this is what you are looking for.
