Hi and welcome to BC. Do you know which flavor of linux you want? There are hundreds of choices. If you have a HSI connection I would recommend you try several. I would also recommend you try a live verison. If your computer need are not very great this may get you started until you learn alittle about linux.
The live version runs from a cd and creates a RAM drive each time you run it. As a matter of fact you can run it over windows with out installing anything on your hard drive. I like Puppy Linux. Download and burn an ISO image with you favorite software (Nero is what I use) and your ready to go. P-I or greater, 128MB RAM, a little hard drive space (100mb or so) and your good to go. If you have 256mb RAM you don't even need a hard drive just a CD-RW to save your settings and data back to the boot cd.
If you just have to have a full blown Linux, I like Red Hat 9.3. To me it seems easiest to install.
Good luck. Post back and let us know how you made out.

EDIT: Here is a link to several Live downloads. Live Linux downloads
