I would say the most logical place to get an installation disc or live CD of any distribution is from that distribution's web site.
After a system is installed, the best place to get additional software is from that distribution's repository of packages. The packages are optimised for that distro and are much easier to install than packages from elsewhere.
the old thread that I participated, what I have written wasn't good enough...
now I write some better reply
Your motivation is quite noble but I doubt that the OP is still monitoring this thread. We know nothing about the specs of his/her machine so making a specific recommendation like yours is probably premature.
