You can download distributions from their homepages. Checkout 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, and 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
to find a book?
or the LinuxDocumentationProject, ibmDeveloperWorks, HowToForge, redhatForums/Wiki's/Howto's
LOL and
a quick look at
(sorry, at school, they always say to "show your working")
