You might like to try Pygmy Linux, a 10Mb download from http://pygmy.penguin.cz 

The X Window environment is an additional 4Mb download.

Pygmy runs under Windows,  which is why it's such a small download - A full distribution would be 50-100Mb

http://www.linuxlinks.com/Distributions/
lists lots of Linux distributions.

Do you have anything in particular in mind?

The best thing to do is to buy a boot that has a bootable cdrom with Linux on it.  Either RedHat or Mandrake are the most popular flavors. Trying to download a 650MB OS will be next to impossible unless you have a cable modem or faster. The book will also show you a step-by-step install.

> buy a boot
- or even a book :)

gillani, I agree with larry, even though that wasn't your question. Downloading
a distribution & creating suitable boot and install media would probably cost
more than buying a CD in 'phone costs, pain etc. Plus you get installation
support from RedHat if you buy their package - probably the same with Mandrake.

Have a look around the sites I suggested before you make up your mind which
distribution to go with - There are some useful comparisons there between the
various packages available.

You can contact SCO and request a free version of either OpenServer or Unixware, if this is for personal use.

geotiger, I don't think Sun provide a way of downloading Solaris - the FAQ basically says "it's too big - send us $75 for the media kit". (It's still a bargain though :)
