Open your CD burning program (k3b, Gnomebaker, more any other) and there should be an option to 'burn image' which is what you need to do. The .iso is an image of the real CD, so you need to apply that image to a blank CD. Burning the single file.iso to a black cd as data wouldn't make the cd bootable.

Nightsky,
An ISO file is an exact binary image of a CD. Download the image and then burn to create the install CDs. Be sure to create the CD per the following link:
