Could you tell me where I can download it? Because it sure isn't on my computer. Also, I want a boot disk that can boot on a system that does not have linux installed, sort of like a dos boot disk.

Download, I'm not shure if this can be done, but check one of the linux distributors, start at http://www.linux.org

This boot disk works on any computer which can run Linux, reguardless the current system on it (it's a "boot disk")
