Will be waiting to hear more from you . It would be a good idea to start with Puppy Linux or DSL... maybe both, since their sizes are so small , easily writable on cheap CDs .

Rather than buying live CDs, I would recommend that you look for live CDs that come with computer magazines. I dont see any point in buying live cds when you just have to experiment with them... unless they come really cheap.

As another suggestion, if some of your friends have high speed connection, and if they agree, then you can ask them to download some live cds for you . And if some friends work in a software company, you can ask them if they have computer magazines subscribed there. Sometimes, the company will allow them to take away the back issues including the CDs. Thats how i got some of the live CDs... my brother got them from his company... although they were some years old.
