I can suggest running VirtualBox if you have some spare space, and
install Debian on that.
In fact, running a LiveCD as a mounted .ISO CD/DVD image in VirtualBox
is as fast as running it as an installed OS. Very very nice way to
try out Linux without installing it, without even installing it in
So download a LiveCD, like http://www.elivecd.org/ and don't even
write the CD. Wahoo!
Those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end,
for they do so with the approval of their consciences.
