      The desktop apps worked (played a game of Freecell) and everything was running smoothly. However... there was no sound and the operating system could not detect the network card. If installing on a hard drive there's a chance that the proper drivers could be downloaded and configured, but when running from a CD you cannot add drivers, software, or change any settings permanently. Still, it's a fast and easy way to see Linux in operation without making changes to the computer or installing anything on the hard drive.

      Have you used a bootable CD before on that computer? Two simple issued that come to mind right away. An ISO is a disk image (the contents of the disk archived into a single file) that must be written to the CD; simply copying the ISO file to a CD won't work. Second, the boot order needs to be set in the computer's BIOS to attempt booting from a CD before the hard drive. Should be set up that way already, or else you could have never installed Windows.

      Here's a list of 192 different Linux distros that can boot and run from CDs, DVDs, etc. without being installed on the hard drive.

      Ok, so it will start to boot, then get to the DSL splash screen. Then it tells me something to the effect of 'can't find knoppix shell' and then gives the prompt "knoppix#"

        The knoppix filesystem is on the CD, so maybe a compatibility issue with the CD-ROM drive?

        Two options at this point if you still want to try Linux:
        1) Choose another distro and go again;
        2) Google search for the exact error message and attempt troubleshooting
