You might consider not loading Unix at all, but getting a free shell
account. There are several sites that offer them. You telnet in (which is
easy to do) and the account is yours to command. You won't be able to do any
admin stuff, but right now you should be learning the user commands, not the
system ones.

You can find several places that offer free accounts at

My favorite is Grex at
