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 
VirtualBox!

So download a LiveCD, like http://www.elivecd.org/ and don't even 
write the CD. Wahoo!
