I can't speak for anyone else but what worked for us was a used computer
(HP, Pavilion, 1.7 GHz Celeron w/512 MB of RAM) and a stack of live CD
ISO files I downloaded to my Win2K machine and burned. I'm typing this
email on that same machine (1.8 GHz Duron w/512 MB of RAM) but it's no
longer running Win2K, it's running Debian Etch and our original "test
bed" is now my wife's PCLinuxOS machine. Even if you don't have an
extra computer to play with, live CDs are a great way to start. If you
don't have the means to burn them I, or in all probability, other
members of this list, will gladly help you out.
The thing to do, is simply start. It's hard to go wrong with Linux.

A proud user of Debian Etch w/KDE.
