    I want to install it on a 700 MB CD-R to rescue my computer in case of viruses and so on.
    So which should I use? Ubuntu or Linux? Where should I download it from?

    you dont need linux to recover from infections, just a good knowledgebase. Ubuntu is linux, its merely a flavor of linux. there are many distro's all just different flavors

    Ubuntu is a Linux distribution.

    http://www.ubuntu.com/

    Edit: Ubuntu is good for new Linux users.
    Download a Live cd from http://www.ubuntu.com/ or here http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download
    You don't need to install Linux/Ubuntu right away. You can try it from the cd.
    You can also use Windows and Ubuntu. Dual-booting.
