Well, this site is meant to offer assistance, not downloads.

If you'd like to try out a liveCD, you can google for the home pages of Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS or Mepis.

But there is a download link on the right of this site:
http://iso.linuxquestions.org/

ISOs can be downloaded from here.

omg, 800+ posts and I hadn't noticed that yet .

Anyway, just remember that not all of those are liveCDs, most are just install cds. If you need a liveCD, try one of those I listed in my previous post.

I would also recommend Knoppix (THE LiveCD par excellence) and Korroraa (has Beryl on it, worked perfectly for me and was my first beryl experience ).

Those are of course more liveCDs than distros.
They can be installed, but usually people take the more popular distributions, which now almost all have live-CDs.

edit:
Well, Kororaa seems to be a Gentoo distribution, so it's probably not recommended if you are new to GNU/Linux.
However, like I said, the live 3D desktop works amazingly well and is fluid even from the live CD.
