I have never had experience with anything like Solaris, linux or BSD other than exposure to their names and find myself thrust into a position where I need to learn how to use Solaris 2.6 at least semi-competently. I was wondering if anyone here would know of a particular book or other medium that would be a good spring board for an utter newbie to this such as myself. Would Solaris be similar to Linux in the respect that if I were to set up a Linux box at home and start playing with it, would it make my learning Solaris that much easier? Sorry for so many questions at once, but sometimes my mind gets the better of me :oops:

You should be able to find an old version of Solaris for x86 architecture. Start with Sun's website.

2.6 is still very SysV; the advent of 2.7 (which became known as 7) started a turn back towards the roots of BSD'ish (nee, SunOS).
