Burn it to a CD-ROM and boot your computer from it. When you burn it, you need to use a burning program capable of writing isos. Simply putting it on a disc as an iso file will not do. See here.

Yes,

Actually I am thinking on following,

1)I can mount the iso inside linux..

mount -o loop /tmp/linux.iso /mnt

2)Then via command line tool how to amend that iso to bootable?

Thanks
