generating test data

Hi, rank newbie here.  I'm wondering how I would go about getting a reasonable sample set of data for testing creative development ideas against.  It doesn;t have to be meaningful, just referentially correct.  Specifically I am looking for multiple contacts and opportunities.

I have searched this discussion board but to be honest there's a bit too much information and it's a little incoherent. 

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

All Developer Edition orgs have sample data.  I would recommend that you start there.
Thanks Nick, can you point me towards something which will describe how I get from a developer account to a developer edition.  Apologies for the numb-headed question but without a map of appex it is a bit of a forest.

A developer account is a developer edition org.  :-)  Just nomenclature subtleties.  You should have sample data included with your org.  When you first click on a tab, such as account, you may have to select View All Accounts and then click go.
