You will be hard pressed to find official *nix curriculum in any college.
Computing resources in colleges and universities is a bit of an ivory
tower, funded by grants and private money. In order to get into the neat-
o stuff, you will probably have to work on a project of some sort. Any
administrator or instructor with any computing resources maintains them
behind a medieval bastian structure. It is a closely guarded secret
world that even Masons, Knights Templar and NSA agents must undergo
excruciating interviews and background checks.
Don't let that stop you, just go around the ivory towers and straight to
the net. Go to google, yahoo, altavista, and dog pile to search for
tutorials, and any thing else you need.
Get an old pentium with a cd drive and modem, and you are ready for
