There are many places. Downloads are free, if you want a made CD then it is a little bit harder, but check out the link below.

I think this is the correct link to request free Ubuntu CDs:

https://shipit.ubuntu.com/myrequest

I got the CDs, but it will not boot the Live CD on my Compaq machine and I have not tried it on other machines. Many people seem to like this distro.

Make sure you get the correct version for your system, eg 64 bit for a 64 bit system, and check you have CD rom in your boot priorities in bios.
