Can I make a bootable Linux DVD to try it?
 
I only have 9GB left on my drive so I can't install Linux on my PC, but I was wondering if any of the Linux programs out there will allow me to make a DVD or CD and run Linux from the DVD drive?

I have no idea if this is even possible, but it would sure be a nice way to learn it, and use it if it can run that way.

Well.. In fact most (popular) Linux nowadays are Live CD's so just burn and boot. It's that simple.

A good way to start learning Linux would be to get started with Puppy Linux. The download is only of 105 MB, and you can write it on to a CD. Its just awesome! Try it, you will love it. It can also be installed on a USB drive, and booted from there, if your computer has the ability to boot from USB. That way, you can also save the settings on the drive itself. But a live CD would be a good way for a start.

Many of the bigger Linux distros have live CDs, which you can try. You can find them from the link J.L. gave.

Thanks for the advice. I came across several and didn't know what to chose.

I will try Puppy Linux. Should be a good starting point.

Another good website is Pendrive Linux

In addition to listing various Live cd and Usb bootable distro's. They have excellent How-to's and applications for getting the job done.
