Or you could use a LiveUSB (it's the way of the future!)

Just go to the website for your distro of choice, and hunt around for
a downloadable LiveUSB image. They'll have instructions on the site of
how to prepare the USB drive, and how to get the image working. All
you have to do then is make sure the machine will allow you to boot
from USB, plug it in, and start the machine up (in much the same way
as Mike's instructions for LiveCD below).

in very important respects, what they seem to be.
