You can download distributions from their homepages. Checkout http://www.distrowatch.com for distributions.

On how to learn to use Linux you should use it and check the documentation available on the internet. LinuxQuestions has a wiki with lot of good articles, linux.org and linux.com have also nice material available. Then there are the man pages which I suggest you to read.

I don't think redhat has a livecd?
Or you can use something like pclinuxos which is based upon Mandrake.
pclinuxos is a LiveCD. and Mandrake is closely related to redhat
I seem to remember mdk being pretty similar to fed, all in all.
LOL and

or the LinuxDocumentationProject, ibmDeveloperWorks, HowToForge, redhatForums/Wiki's/Howto's
