Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

here is a how-to
to burn the iso image onto CD using Nero
How to Burn a CD using Nero
Version 6 (Ultra)
--- Step 1 Launch Nero.
--- Step 2 Select "Copy and Backup" icon near top right of dialog box.
--- Step 3 Choose "Burn Image to Disc"
--- Step 4 Choose "Image Files (x.nrg;x.iso;x.cue)" from the "Files of type:" drop-down list.
--- Step 5 Navigate to the .iso file. Dbl-click on it or select it and choose "Open" button.
--- Step 6 Choose the "Write Speed" and "Number of copies" values on the Image Recording dialog box. Click Next.
--- Step 7 If you don't have a CD in the drive, Nero will ask you for one. Otherwise, Nero begins the burn process.
--- Step 8 Unless there was a problem, you're done. Nero has a couple of more screens.
Version 5.5 or earlier
--- Step 1 Insert a blank CD into the CD writer
--- Step 2 Launch Nero.
--- Step 3 In the File menu, select "Burn CD image".
--- Step 4 Choose as file type: all files (.), since Nero expects files with the NRG suffix.
--- Step 5 Select the ISO image file
--- Step 6 You will see a dialog box asking if you want to supply detailed image parameters.
(for later versions, these are the default values)
Enter the following parameters:
* Type of image: Data Mode 1
* Block size: 2048 bytes per sector
* File precursor and image trailer: 0 length
* No scrambled and no Swapped.
--- Step 7 Click on "burn". If the program complains that there are errors in the image file, click on the button "Ignore" and launch the burning.
What is an ISO Image?
An ISO is a file that contains the complete image of a disc, from sector 0 to the end. Such files are often used when transferring CDROM images over the Internet, and are commonly used as a way of offering Linux distributions for download. The latest version of the SME Server, for example, is available from contribs.org for download using this format. Once you have it on your hard drive, you can burn it onto a CD using one of many CD-burning software packages.
More precisely, an ISO image is an image of an ISO 9660 CD-ROM. ISO is short for the International Organization for Standardization. (ISO is not an acronym. Instead, the name derives from the Greek word iso, which means equal.) The ISO 9660 format defines the file system used by almost all CDROMs of Windows, Mac, Linux and so on.
Some CD-burning applications create plain ISO 9660 images, while others interpret the ISO format as they like. Nero, from Ahead Software, uses the NRG suffix to name its ISO images. ISO images created by Easy CD Creator (from Roxio, Inc., which was spun off from Adaptec, Inc. in September, 2000) contain some lead-in and lead-out bytes around the core of the 2048-byte sector. This explains why ISO images created by Easy CD Creator cannot be burnt by all burning packages (for example, CDRWin complains about the file not beeing a multiple of the sector size). On the other hand, Easy CD Creator can burn plain ISO images written by other packages.
Can't remember where I pinched all this from
