Hi Richard,

I don't know very much about XP's native CD writing software, but iso 
files are images that encapsulate not only files but filesystem 
information.  I've had experience with Nero for Windows.  In that program, 
you would need to use the 'Burn image' option (IIRC).  If you have Linux, 
you can use cdrecord to burn the image.
