This is exactly how I got started using Linux in the first place.  Somebody
had uploaded some .ZIP files to a BBS I used a lot (this was a long time ago).
I downloaded them, unzipped them, ran the magic .BAT file, and BANG,
I was running UNIX on my PC. After playing with Linux for a while, I
finally decided to get serious.  I bought another hard drive, and did 
a real install. The umsdos route is a great way to get people started.
