    You can download Linux from anywhere for free.

    Either from the link above, or go to your local TUCOWS site in the Linux section, they have all the popular distrubutions and almost guarantee you high speed all the time.

    Yes, you should be able to dl any of the linux distros for free from their respective web sites. You will usually be able to chose from a disc image (which you can burn onto your own instal CD if you have a burner), or you can dl a base install and RPMs and install from them.

    However, I recommend that you go and buy an unofficial copy of a distro if you can do so conveniently. Downloading over the web is a major pain in the but Here in Australia there is a popular unofficial distribution of redhat and mandrake that comes packaged in a four CD set which you can buy from almost any newsagency for the price of a packet of cigaretts. Well worth it compared to the hours and hours of downloading if you are on a dial-up modem connection.
