Really New to Ubuntu

I'm am trying to try out ubuntu to see if I like it and am having bunches of problems. I want to try the version that allows me to run it from a CD/DVD without having to install it on my PC. I first downloaded the version 8.04 desktop ISO. The instructions say to burn it to a 700 MB CD. The problem is that the file is larger than 700 MB, so it won't fit. I performed the procedure for verifying the download and it is fine. I burned the ISO to a DVD (+RW), but it didn't burn correctly as all I get is the unexpanded file on the DVD. Do I need to burn it to a DVD +R instead?
I am in the process of downloading the Alternate desktop version as it is a little smaller file. At this point, I'm not sure I'm downloading the right file at all. It seems to me the only choice I have is to download a version that installs on my PC and I don't want to do that just yet.
Where do I go from here?
