Any distro of linux/unix has command line access. It's called the terminal. Not all distros come with a GUI by default, so you will encounter the terminal upon installation of the distro.

Do you already have a distro of linux installed and available?

What are you trying to accomplish, exactly?

Are you looking for a SSH client for remote access, like Putty?
