Depends on the distro. You can get any of them through downloading an ISO file (Google the appropriate distro) and then burning (mounting is probably a better term) to a blank CD or DVD. Some distros, like Ubuntu, will send you a free Live CD if you ask them to, though it takes a while to arrive.

Damn Small Linux (Google it) is small enough that it fits on a floppy, that's about all I can suggest here besides virtualization. However, Damn Small Linux has no networking capabilities at all and no GUI, making it fairly useless for anything other than generating PGP keys or things that need to be ubersecure.

Well, there are a lot of distros out there in the web, but i recommends you Fedora or Ubuntu distros.
A lot of information about those in the net (you just need to google by a little :P).

You use Fedora right now, but i was a beginner/a little intermediate Debian's user.

The most documented and used distros are:

Debian
Fedora
Ubuntu (the most famous son of Debian)

etc...

Check Distrowatch web page , you can find a lot of distros, documentation and reviews of them.
See ya!!
