Bootable CD or dvd


Hi all I'm new to the Linux environment but have always been interested in it. We recently upgraded the family computer so I want to us our old 32 bit pentium 4 desktop to try to learn the Linux OS. I'm having trouble locating a diatro download that is actually bootable from CD/DVD. I had one work to a point (slitaz-live) it is not what I really wanted but I was trying anything. I really don't want to keep making copies of images that are not bootable. I found a program to verify the the ISO is bootable or not and spent last night download different distro's only to be frustrated. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
