Another good way to get to grips with it is to use a virtual machine.
Would you (or anyone else) be able to recommend a virtual machine?
Virtual machine, to me, means a command-prompt with a Unix look
and feel, with Unix commands which translate into the MS-DOS
equivalents. Is that the same type of Virtual Machine you refer to?

I don't get paid for endorsing software, and don't work for VMware so
this is not a troll!
VMware 5 workstation is awesome! Download it and try it out it rocks.
I was doing the dual-boot thang on my laptop, and it just got to be
too disruptive. I needed wireless connectivity via an air-card, ( not
just 802.11g ) to get out to the net via my Wireless phone company,
so I could have wireless anywhere. Software isn't available for the
air-card on Linux, so booting into Linux was ok as long as I could
find an 801.11g WAN if I wanted wireless access to the net. And then
it was dealing with email, etc etc. I'd have to go boot back into Windows
just to get my email, and then back into Linux again, like running a
submarine or something, now we're back in Linux, no internet, isolated,
etc etc. It got to be too much, I needed Windows and Linux at the same
time, on my laptop, so what to do? VMware!
I now have WindowsXP running all my desktop shit, and air-card out to
the net while at my client site, and VMware running SuSE10, FLAWLESSLY.
VMware runs my SuSE10 in 256MB of memory!! Is that awesome or what.
I have 1GB of memory on my laptop so there's room for even another VM
of another distro, at the same time. And I can "team" them up too,
some kind of clustering or subnetting thing with VMware I still haven't
Cool thing about VMware, it automagically set up the net for me, and
when I'm in the VM, I can get out to the net, and do all my PHP/Apache
/MySQL stuff as if I'm on a real server. It's awesome. Until Linux
gets an air-card that works like a cable-modem, I'm done. I can connect
to the VM Apache web server from Windows just like it's another server
out there, and do real PHP programming on Linux, and not have to install
PHP or Apache on Windows. VMware Workstation is only $189, so it's
and easier to use that if you'd use MKSToolkit or cygwin, and those
never really get you the real world, easier to get real Linux in a VM, and
you're done, no incompatibility issues or any of that shit. Get VMware
or don't, but I'm telling you it's awesome. The other thing about
VMware is the "Fit VM Guest Now" function that sizes the desktop to
your monitor. Too many cool features about VMware, and get this, you
can share your CD-ROM between the VM and Windows at the same time, as
well as your Windows disk drives. It is really cool stuff. The price
is right too, 30-day eval, you can't go wrong.
So couldn't you use the 30-day eval to create the machine, then use the free
player/server to run it? :-P
