Linux runs under unix, like windows 95/98 runs under DOS...

shawn, are you sure about that? I have linux and I'm pretty sure that it doesn't...
Technicalally Linux runs under nothing (except the linux kernel :) ). The Linux OS is based MINIX which is arguably based on Unix but not really. I believe MINIX was a small time OS created by some professor over in Europe .. not to sure on that one .. but anyway, Linux does share allot of Unix commands and file structures but to say its directly being run by a UNIX background would be incorrect.

I agree with everyone else so far as to what to study first, learn Linux then move move to one of the hundred flavors of Unix. :eek:
