Why not just install cygwin in your windows pc and try?
I prefer installing the software and doing it properly.
Check this cool application
http://junix.kzn.ru/unix/unix.htm

You will be prompted for an unix account and password.
Supply whatever you want.
Start playing. Gives you a unix look and feel environment

Get a book/tutorial.
Just google for unix tutorials.
You will get a lot of leads.

hi
There is no root concept in ubuntu use sudo for executing command as root

ex: sudo mkdir
