You might stop by a Border's bookstore and pick up a copy of The Debian
Linux User's Guide or get it on the web from Linux Press.  It comes with a
thing called "Drop-in Debian" and takes less than 100MB of diskpace while
living in a regular MSDOS filesystem.

It is on the CDROM that comes with the book.
