edit: I can copy files to the cd but do I need to extract the iso first?
In Windows> I have had good luck using Imageburn which is free to download and use. Just be sure to pick BURN IMAGE option in Menu.

Spybot killed Imageburn download
Spybot killed Imageburn's .exe due to malicious software?
Yeah, I used avast and it said ImgBurn was fine, opened it and it's nowhere to be found. I'm going to try your link.
writing vs. burning iso?
I can write the iso to cd but don't see an option to burn. Is there a difference?
No difference. Writing a CD is called burning because it's done with a laser and frankly it sounds cooler...
cool! I am burning the ubuntu iso now (and not the extracted files as they are not iso's). Some info:

I am hoping ubuntu runs, I think it will. I don't think I can dual boot (thank you everyone who helped me figure this out) reasonably. I was looking at Lubuntu but am not finding a lot of info on it so sticking to ubuntu. I'm worried about the internet though...if I linux over windows and can't get on it I'm in trouble!
edit: finished burning and it says there was an error writing the disk and it may no longer be usable. Could this be due to using a windows program (which I did because I found it would) or to an actual error?

Don't open it, download some image burning software as suggested above or it won't work. When I last used windows, I downloaded a program called ImgBurn which worked to burn iso images.
I did download ImgBurn, Spybot hated it, I used vista to check it and it came out fine, ran the exe and can't find it now. Any help?
edit: It gives me the option of erasing the disk...it's a CD-RW.
