It's a disc image. You need an .iso file burner. Nick mentioned some
programs, I want to add http://www.deepburner.com/ as another
possibility. (I've been using the free version. It's a nice little
lightweight utility.)
So let me get this straight... one downloads a ".iso" file on Windows,
and by default it DOESN'T know that the appropriate thing to do with this
is to burn it as a disc image onto a CD?  Sheesh! :^)
It doesnt know what to do with every file. It has no disc burner software included, so it has no response for .iso unless you install burner software.

(who downloaded a random .deb file the other day, and just right-clicked
it in KDE and selected "install" ;^) )
In windows that would be a .cab file. It does know what to do with that.
Hmmm does Linux default setup know what to do with an iso?

It used to be that politics, religion, and sex were not subject for a
polite social gathering. Now that sex is ok I guess its avoid politics,
religion, and operating systems.
