Yes, that should work.
If you are considering actually installing a distribution and you already used Ubuntu, the next "logical" step would be Debian (but what is logical with so many excellent distros around?). Don't be overwhelmed by the huge set of install cds; you only need the first one, unless you haven't got an internet connection and installing from disk is all you can do. btw, Knoppix is based on Debian and so is Ubuntu (to mention just a few).
