Read the instructions?
If these are .ISO files you can read them directly.

As JeremyBoden pointed out you have 3 options.

1. mount the iso
Code:
# mount -o loop dvd.iso /media
2. write the ISO to a usb drive
Code:
dd if=/path/to/iso.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=1M
3. Write the ISO to dvd using either k3b or brasero.

If you want to burn them to disk, be sure to use the "Burn ISO" tool in your burning program. If you just burn the *.iso to disk, all you will have is a copy of the *.iso file.

I know. I've done it.
