grym, i do recall a mention of linux written in C- which leads to the question of what C is? i did a google search, and it returned this:

Talking FLOPPIX!

If you just want to learn Linux the easy way, without seriously screwing up your computer, go to www.floppix.com! They have a Linux distro on two floppies, made especially for newbies! It doesn't allow any harddrive interaction, so you can't mess anything up. The website also has a "Labs" tab at the top, which will teach you all the basics of command line Linux. I'm sorry if somebody already posted this, but I just did a search, came acroos this, read the first post, and instantly put in a reply. Sorry for any repeat suggestions.

duncanbojangles, this might be what i'm looking for. 2 floppies qualifies for small for sure.

one thing i don't like, is there aren't any md5sums available for checking what i have downloaded. i made the 2 floppy diskettes (pretty awesome), but i'll probably stick it on an older/ slower comp due to being nervous. still haven't tried it, but will soon (no md5sums- not good).

No need to worry.

Don't worry about md5sum's, it can't, absolutely can't, write anything to the harddrive. Everything is done in RAM. SO just throw it in whatever computer is nearest, and learn!
