Yes, there is a software file you download called unetbooting

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

You download this file, load it up and it finds the Linux distro you choose, downloads and installs it on a USB flash drive and also makes the flashdrive bootable.

Then, you can run Linux from the flash drive, and if you like it, install it right from there and rid yourself of windows forever!

thanks guys, I really appreciate your help. I'm still looking for a cheap used laptop to turn into an experimental machine...

you know the routine, a used Dell, HP or Gateway with 512K and a 40G HD. Just enough to load Ubunta and have a little fun with non MS products...
