Also keep an idea on some of the mainstream computer mags. They tend to
put at least one of the distro's on the cover every month or two.
(Sometimes the newsagents have them cheap in the surplus bin).
As said by another, Ubuntu, is a very good 1 CD distro.

Subject: [SLUG] Grabbing a copy of Linux
I'm a Sydney teenager and I'm sick of Windows. I've been a fan of Linux
for a while, I've got a copy of Knoppix, but recently I was at the
Australian Informatics camp and after using Debian for 10 days, it
depresses me to come home to my Windows box. I was wondering if you knew
where or how I could find some help with getting a copy of Debian with
the full KDE, and getting onto my machine so it will dual-boot, Windows
or Debian. Niether myself nor my friend (who also went to the camp,
despises Windows and wants to get Debian as a dual system) can download
the complete disks, and neither of us know how to safely install it on a
partition so it won't stuff up Windows, and Windows won't stuff it up.
If this isn't possible with Debian, a different flavour of Linux with
the KDE would be okay - but the Debian pre-release, which we used at the
camp, worked fine for everything we needed and we'd be happy with that.
