    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can create a Unetbootin Live USB drive on another computer (can be done from a WIndows, OSX, or Linux system), and boot from that. It will let you try out the OS, and then install it to the computer.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
