Hi. Does anyone know a good Unix training program? Something other than Cygwin. I'd like to train on something that simulates a real Unix enviornment. Please, not a Linux environment. Or maybe a good website with training material. Thanks in advance.

Umm, why not? You can read about it all you want, but at some point you are going to have to dive in and apply what you have read to really learn anything.

get an old computer and install FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD or your Unix flavor of choice. You won't ever really get the same results from an environment (cygwin or otherwise). I'm running FreeBSD on a P3 500, works just fine, and I believe you can install it on anything down to a 486 (only for the patient though)
