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.

Just in case, go in the BIOS - press <delete> or <F8> just at startup - and check that you still have the CD/DVD on the boot device list. If you never went in there before, dont change anything, or dont go ..
here is a burn command that - kinda - works for me:
That means you burned it incorrectly. If you had burned it correctly (I'm not criticising you, just telling you where the mistake you made was ), you would see a collection of files and folders. You need to find out how to burn images in the software you're using (Nero for example has a "Burn image" option in the menu somewhere. Your software may have a similar option).
Far from it. There should be files and directories instead. Use a "burn from an iso image" option of your burning software; disc images are burnt in a special way (not as regular data cds).
Great Windows software, free of charge: imgburn. It's by far the best tool I've seen when working with images on Windows; it even burns a cd iso onto DVD without asking stupid questions like other programs
