     I want to get started learning Linux. In the past, I used Unix, so I 
hope I know some of the basic commands. My problem is how to get a box up 
and running. I have a PC that has or will have a hard drive and CD drive in 
it. There does not seem to be a local Linux group in my area of Louisiana. I 
use speech and have a Braillex 2D braille display. My goal is to have a box 
that I can learn enough Linux on so I can become certified and return to the 
workforce. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
