Which is the Suitable and free flavor to get practice in Linux Server

As of now i am working in Windows environment as an Administrator But i would like to learn Linux. I just started my learning with the Redhat Linux. My learning is going on with the system level like user account creation and file management and so on..

But when i come to server level as you know we have to get the license. So kindly i request you to help me is there any way to get practice in configuring all the servers in free of cost.

What acid_kewpie said. Go ahead with a CentOS 6.x virtual machine and a one of the Linux starter's pdf.

Play Bonny!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.
