You may obtain such an information from official sites of distributions you interested in.

P. S. You may get Linux CDs even free of charge:

Or, to simply answer the question - try osdisc.com or linuxcd.com. I use the first, have not tried the second.

Many distributions that offer free downloads of the .iso files also offer CDs and/or DVDs for sale. Visit the site of the individual distribution. I think Mepis is the easiest/best Linux distribution for a Linux beginner (especially a Linux beginner with previous Windows experience). Mepis CDs and DVDs are sold at
