How to get started with Ubuntu

I've been working with computers for decades but have zero experience with any form of Unix, Linux, or Ubuntu. I keep reading about it, so now I'm ready to see what I need to do to make a bootable Ubuntu CD.
I want to be very careful not to do anything with it to my hard drives. I had a bad experience with a recovery disc for Acronis True Image a couple of years ago that wiped out about 5 partitions, so I just want to make a bootable CD for now, being extremely careful not to do anything with my hard drives.
I've been using UBCD which works well, but it does take its sweet time booting up and it's probably good for everyone since it requires an XP SP1 or later install disc to create.
What do I need to do to get started with Ubuntu?
