After you downloaded the iso files, you need to burn them
to a cd. You need to have some software installed for that.
I don't know what system you're using right now.
But if you're using linux you can try k3b to do that
Once you got your cds, you need to boot on them to install
to your hard drive.
There's another solution if you want to try out different linux
distributions without installing anything in your hard drive:
the live linux distributions.
Here's a couple of them
slax (based on slackware)
grml (based on debian)
Both can also run from a usb stick. So you don't even have
to burn a cd.
