Are you sure you want to learn about Unix as opposed to Linux? If so,
which version of Unix do you wish to master? And if I can be cheeky, why?

Although Linux is loosely based on Unix and shares many concepts, it is
very different when it comes to the other topics you mention, and indeed
the various flavours of Unix have significant differences from each
other. It will take many years to become an expert in all these systems.

The other factor to bear in mind is that you can’t learn these skills
just from books. You will need to have access to machines running these
systems, and you’ll most likely need rootly powers to get very far.

well, which books are “most worthy” will be a matter of opinion!

a person with one year experience will have one opinion and a person
with 30 years of experience a much different opinion.

which opinion do you want?

and, do NOT overlook Dave’s note and please decide what you want to
do, become a Unix expert? or a Linux expert? or a 'nix-like expert.

I don’t have that much experience, but I have forgotten what books I
used to learn. They are somewhere on a shelve, but they are also obsolete.

Agreed.

Actually I want to be an Linux expert because it is more advanced than any other Unix system. I think all the Unix flavours share some basic concepts and I want to know these concepts and also I must be able to configure regular tasks on any Unix system and also I don’t want to go deeper into other systems.

I have installed freeBSD,Solaris along with Linux on my system. I have tried to install SCO UnixWare but failed if anybody help me I would be happy.
