While watching Tech-Tv last night I saw this interesting clip. about a linux that U don't have to install to hard drive Knopper.net it's a German site so I had to have Google translate it for me. It is bootable straight from the CDROM and U don't have to install it to a hard drive.

Knoppix runs directly off the CD and the only resource it uses on the PC is the RAM. You pop the CD into the system, restart and it boots into knoppix w/o any sort of installation. It has all the programs and drivers you could need. If you do find your self needed to save information it does give you the ability to mount a hard drive. Other than that, if you wanna give Linux a swing without any sort of configurations or installations. Knoppix will let you get your feet wet.
