Arrow Redhat Linux

Does anyone know of any software that makes your desktop look like Redhat linux because id like to try out linux but im too scared because of the partioning you have to do and im afraid i will mess up my comp big time.
ive currently got Style xp and set my desktop to look like apples computer desktops but this is now boring.
Thanks

Knoppix is the best distro to learn on, get this version KNOPPIX_V3.9-2005-05-27-EN.iso 01-Jun-2005 16:17 696M from here. Then burn the iso to cd, then away you go...
