http://distrowatch.com/ to download a ISO. Since you are new I will provide a Ubuntu step by step since you have not stated which distro you will use in your post with so little info provided.

As a beginner you will probably want to start with one of the easy to install and use desktop distros. Ubuntu may be a good choice, but there are others which can also be easy to install and use.

Other suggestions may be gleaned from some of these pages:

If you are interested in learning more about Ubuntu then I suggest starting with one of these pages:
