Get a live cd, and boot from it.

Or you can use vmware player to play linux virtual machines.

Or you can get Damn Small Linux Embedded that runs inside windows.

I recommend using Ubuntu Live CD download from
TRy out 10.04 which is the latest one.

The Live CD wont disturb your setup.
It simply uses your RAM and help you to browse feature of Linux.
Hope you have nice time trying out my craziest Linux distibution.

There are many Linux-based "distros" to choose from. DistroWatch can help choose which ones are best suited to what you want and so which to try first. Any distro which has just been released is likely to have more bugs that after it has been out for a while -- like Windows releases before SP1 (or SP2 or SP3!).
