Running Linux on laptop?

I would like to learn more about Linux . I have limited funds and would like to buy a used laptop and load and run a version of Linux. I have tried this in the past but ran into problems . I was using older ibm type laptops( like 133mhz and 40mb ram) and have dial up as internet access. So I guess what I would like to know is what is a good choice for type of laptop that would be Linux friendly.I dont need anything fancy I just want to learn the process . also any recommendation of distro .

I am having problems running a Linux live CD?

The next step to running Linux off a live CD?
OK so i downloaded the file and i burned it to disc. i restarted the computer but Vista loaded up. The os came from here: http://www.opensuse.org/
And i got the ose url from this http://www.zegeniestudios.net/ldc/index….
what have i yet to do to get it to work btw the disc is 700MB Memorex CD-R
i transfered the file striaght from the desktop to the disc the file name is
openSUSE-11.0-KDE4-LiveCD-i386-iso
and it says file folder
and in that its
openSUSE-11.0-KDE4-LiveCD-i386
and that is an ISO file

Virtual Machine (for Linux)?

I want to learn more about Linux and the different distros before I try to dual boot or anything of the sort. I tried live cds, but you can’t learn much from those, as you can’t save anything and download anything without having to keep resetting an internet connection. I tried running Linux through Windows Virtual PC 2007 and 2004, but neither of them work. I’ve heard of VMware, but which one do you download? I’ve also heard of Virtual Box and am considering trying it.

So which download is the right one?
