A linux boot cd

Hi I have a freind who is servering the dark side(ie microsoft) I would like to turn him to the light side(ie linux) :-) however, he does not want to install linux as he thinks it will take to much time. A linux boot cd would be just the thing to get him into linux, however I do not have a cd burner. Is there any one out there who can make me a boot cd? I would like gcc and libs and a window manager, and anything else you can stuff onto it. I know this is a  big project, but I will shower whoever does it with points.
Please hurry as I want it before christmas and I live overseas.
Jesse.

Yes you can just pop cd in and boot linux and cheapbytes will sell it for few dollars. There is also BEOS demo that works from cd-rom
