[clug] LINUX OUTLETS IN THE ACT

I'm new to Linux and my interet revolves around creating an E book that
is a live and thus independent of the user's operating system. I've
explored using Knoppix (too big), DamnSmallLinux, Featherlinux and Slux.
As it is difficult for me to download because of an old fashioned modem
dial up connection, to compile (DSL just doesn't compile for me) and
create from an image file (Feather and Slux) I was hoping there may be
an outlet in the ACT or Region where I can just buy a live CD and save
all this hassle.
I know one answer was to strip back Knoppix but looking at how it was
done for DSL on the internet is way beyond my capabilities. I am trying
to be independent of Acrobat Distiller (if Acrobat had a Linux distiller
I would be OK) and MS Reader (which provides a very attactive EBook but
does not handle interdocument hyperlinks).
I would appreciate any suggestions or help in this matter.
