First you may take a look at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/newto/
and then you can try and download websphere community edition from

Just one word of caution: WebSphere Commercial Edition and WebSphere Community Edition are not really very much alike. If you want to learn WebSphere because your company or client is using the commercial edition, I'd suggest you see if you can get a copy of the commercial version WebSphere Applicatoin Server or Rational Application Developer (Which comes with WebSphere) from them. Otherwise, you can get a trial copy from the IBM website.

what's the difference between the "WSAD" and "RAD"? My understanding is that: "WSAD" is the old name for the IDE, "RAD" is the new name. Is this right?

How can I download the websphere server commerical trial version?

Correct. IBM renamed it to include the Rational name after they acquired Rational. RAD (6+) is just a later version of WSAD (4-5).

Have you looked on the IBM website yet?

I might humbly suggest my own website, which is full of free tutorials and CBTs that help you perform such WebSphere tasks as deployment, configuration, clustering and installation. There's also a bunch of free multi-media tutorials on things such as configuring portal, J2EE development and the like, most of which demonstrates application development using IBM's Rational Application Developer (IRAD).
