I will check if I have any CD/DVDs, if not may consider following that option too.
It is a little tricky though (I'm not very skilled at using Linux).
I'd recommend creating ISO files (do not directly create discs) as I had some minor problems.
I created a Live Linux Mint 14 MATE ISO last week.
I followed the Ubuntu instructions (I couldn't find any for LM 14).
I wanted to create a Live DVD that had GParted and Wireshark installed.
It took seven attempts for me to get an ISO file that worked basically the way I wanted.
It ended up being a Live DVD of my installation (i.e. I need to use my user name and password to use it) as opposed to the standard Live install DVD (no user name or password required).
If you use Ubuntu, there is a GUI program (Remastersys?) that you can use to create a Live CD.
