There are a few distributions:
- Slackware (http://www.cdrom.com/titles/os/slackwar.htm
  OR ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/linux/slackware-current/

- RedHat (www.redhat.com
  OR ftp.redhat.com)

- Stampede (http://www.stampede.org/)

- SuSE (http://www.suse.de/)

- Debian (http://www.debian.org)

Make your choice and download it, preferably from a mirror. Follow the instructions included with the distribution; they should be clear enough to help you install it. If you don't want to download a Linux distribution, you can always buy a CD.

if you have time and a free HD, you can download slackware
ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/linux/slackware-3.6 (current version)

but you can buy a cdrom with linux and the manuals to you learn how to install linux. only U$ 1,99.

I won't post an answer, until I'm sure it's correct, or until the problem's solved. I think the question is more accessible when it isn't answered.

But narun: is there something wrong with my/cox's answer?

Go to linux.org find hal91 on the distribution. It's only
as big as a floppy. This is a good test drive.
If you plan to go full spin then stop the download thing and
get yourself a CD. You would not  want to download 500 meg do you?
Believe me you'll waste your time on the download part.
I did it before.
