I can suggest you to start from BEA WebLogic 8.1. It's free (for developers :-)
But you need to install only BEA WebLogic Server! Forget about Workshop, Portal, Integration parts of WebLogic's platform. Just server works rather good on my laptop Celeron 1Ghz/256mb/WinXP, so I shouldn't it will slow down your PC too much.
Personally I've started from JBoss, but you will miss documentation. WebLogic Server has good documention, and free (however with mistakes :-), but there are also a lot of articles dealing WebLogic Server.
Also, many J2EE IDE's support WebLogic. Elipse 3 requires Lomboz plug-in for it, but Intellij IDEA 4.5 has that support from the very beginning.
