If it's Linux you're interested in, consider a Live CD such as Knoppix, Ubuntu, or the Fedora 7 DVD (which just came bundled with this month's Linux Format magazine. That way you can experiment all you want and not actually have to wipe out anything off the hard disk of your computer.

Have a look at our Linux/Unix FAQ. You will find many of your answers there.

If you're primarily interesting in learing shell scripting, another option is to install cygwin. Cygwin provides many Unix features within a Windows framework, so you don't even have to reboot - you can run bash scripts and most of the Unix command-line utilities direct from a cygwin console window. You can even start up a copy of X windows!

It's OK for a lot of stuff, though you have to pay attention to some of its funny handling of filename components and stuff, since "\" and ":" and "/" and ";" have somewhat different meanings under Windows and Unix, and Cygwin has to make some compromises. Also "C:\" is "/cygdrive/c/".

I would encourage installing ubuntu, which is a very differnt feeling than cygwin with all your antivirus running.
This bash-scripting guide is pretty exhaustive:

but I don't know your book - perhaps it's better, perhaps not.
