Bass Guitar

Can I begin learning bass guitar on a regular guitar?

I've been wanting to pick up bass guitar but I don't have one, I'm pretty sure you can tune the bottom 4 strings of a 'normal' guitar to be the same a bass guitar. My question is whether that would be alright? I heard mention that the fretting is different on the two so I may get confused when I upgrade. It's only to start with as I don't want to buy a bass guitar until I'm sure it's for me, even the cheapest second hand ones cost £fiddy.

Also what do I need to tune the strings to on the 6string guitar to match a bass?

Not really, as an attempt to drop the tuning on a regular guitar to that of a bass would leave the strings so loose as to buzz and flap ridiculously bad, and the "feel" of those big fat bass strings would be nowhere to be found. Fine idea to learn bass, but get a bass guitar to do it.
