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.

Download and install imageburn: http://www.imgburn.com/
Once that is finished click on the icon of the iso you downloaded (xubuntu) and it should be opened with imageburn.
As far i know Nero is able to do it too, but i am not sure.
Almost any CD burning program will let you write a .iso to a CD in files/folders mode which is incorrect, or as an image which is correct. But the terminology varies between programs. So if you know how to use whatever CD burning software you already have, it can do the job. But Imgburn may be better and it is free and we can tell you how to use it.
I've never know the CD quality to matter and Imgburn defaults are fine for the speed.
After correctly burning the CD, you might need to use your BIOS's boot device menu to select the CD as the device to boot from. Or your BIOS might be set to boot from the CD whenever a bootable CD is present during booting.
im not really big on my linux knowledge specifically but as for burning an ISO to disc its pretty simple. first download the ISO from whichever source you choose, personally i use the ubuntu homepage. then once you have the ISO use your CD burner. there should be a selection for creating a data CD. or you can right click on the ISo and there should be an option that says "burn to disc"
