    what you should do is if you have nero or a similar cd burning program, select the "burn image" option in it and nero or your cd burning program will extract and burn the iso for you. Note don't use winrar or winzip to extract the files!
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    To burn a ISO file you need software like Nero, from nero.com, or google it, and get a trial version. Install it. Then open it. Then go to file, bun image and select ur image.

    Voila
