  1. you download the ISO from the internet to your laptop, and then burn it to the CD.
  2. You are able to download any Linux ISO for free (100% legally) online. Suggestions would be anything Debian based (Ubuntu, Mint, PCLinuxOS, Debian), maybe Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva. There are plenty of options, but again, I tend to suggest Debian based OS's.

    Once you have an ISO downloaded, you can either make a bootable USB drive (using an application such as unetbootin), or burning the ISO to a CD and installing it in the traditional method.

    Good luck :)
