Something like Ubuntu Linux 11.10 Live Bootable 8GB Flash Drive - Run or Install from USB
, apparently $16.32.
Good deal, or you got sumthin better?
How about free?
Simply visit the web site of any Linux distribution you're interested in, such as Kubuntu
, and download the version of your choice. Burn its ISO file to a CD or DVD, then use the disc to boot up from. In other words, you'll be booting up from its 'live' feature, which does nothing to your hard drive(s). When you're ready, you can use the same disc to actually install Linux.
