    Do you want unix or linux?what type of linux do you want debian,ubuntu,mint,fedora or anything else?
    Go to the official website of corresponding linux distro and you can download it without any cost.
    for ubuntu- http://www.ubuntu.com/download
    for linux mint- http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
    etc.

    My goal is to learn again so that I end up with a dual-boot laptop.

    It's always advised to learn it by using it.So you start using it after following the installation guide.Then move around the beginners' forum and learn it and for any problem do not hesitate to post there. :)
