but he's asking about teaching unix *basics*, not admin.  i teach
intro unix to an aix-heavy company, and i use red hat as the
training vehicle.  all i do is load on a korn shell, and for the
most part, i'm good to go.  not that big a deal, and they barely
notice the difference.


p.s.  also, notice that linux also has a bsd-flavor to a number of
the commands, so the users should feel right at home.
