Thanks, Stan, but I'm not asking anyone to go to all that trouble.  I 
can do that myself.  I just want something to test, and possibly prepare 
the hard drive of, the new machine; I don't plan to install any of them. 
  I don't want to install something without knowing the machine works 
properly, because I'm going to try "cloning" my current PC's 
installations of Slackware and Arch to the new machine.

If someone has a live CD they no longer want, either because it's a 
version out-of-date or you didn't like that distro, I'll be happy to get 
it out of your life.  I have really old live CDs, but I wanted something 
more modern that would stress the system a little bit more, just for 
fun.  I already know it's going to vastly out-perform my current PC, an 
Athlon 1200 with 256MB of RAM.  If nobody already has such a CD they're 
willing to part with, I'll just use what I have.  Thanks for helping me 
out, though.
