    I was thinking of giving Linux a test drive and was wondering whether there is a portable version of Linux that can be run from a USB drive or a CD. This would allow me to learn linux while still maintaining my Windows platform (currently running windows xp on a Pentium 4 with 1 GB RAM)

    PCLinuxOS.com for a great distro especially for converting Windows users.

    Includes everything you need including binary video drivers and works 100% from the CD.
