I apologise if this is too simplistic but I don't know what level of knowledge 
you are at, anyway I once spent days trying to change directories :-)

Boot into Windows connect to the internet with your winmodem follow the 
links the other people have directed you to and save them in a directory.

Boot up Linux mount your windows partition by either using the command line 
tool mount or cheat if you have KDE2 use the disk free utility to mount 
the directory you can then browse the saved pages using Konquer.

Corel paint may suit you more than GIMP I think it is available as a download 
 if you hold off a while on graphics side a lot of Mac software is going 
to be ported to OS X and hence no doubt to BSD, Linux and other Kernels.

Training is a bit more tricky try your local colleges, Bromley college does 
a Linux courses pretty cheaply (£200) but it is a way out for you.  Also 
remember that the government will give you up to £150 quid off some courses 
meaning you may only end up paying £50 or so for the course.  Ask before 
you enroll and remember that you may need to give a few weeks for the wheels 
of bureaucracy to grind on with the training grant

Hope this helps
