Almost all linux install media can be booted from CD/DVD or usb memory stick, but the way that is done differs a lot between distros.

Check the install instructions for a distro you want to try.
If you don't understand them, post a link to the part you're having problems with and ask for specific help.

Note : this should probably be moved to Newbie section.
