I want to install Linux on my PC (133Mhz Pentium, 32Mb memory) alongside my Windows 95 installation. Primarily I want to experiment with using Linux C++ and Java compilers.

Is there a good reference book that includes a copy of the Linux OS and a C++/Java compiler, mixed with good instructions on how to install Linux in a separate partition?

 "Special Edition Using Linux" by Que books comes with THREE versions of Linux on accompanying CD's, and all the tools and compilers.
  The book is very comprehensive and covers installing Linux very well.
  You should be able to get it through www.amazon.com

I took a brief look at this book at the weekend in a local bookstore. It does seem very good, however at first glance it did not appear to have a section on using compilers. Did I miss this, it is quite possible that I did.
