Yes, you have to use the "burn CD image" (or similar) option, as opposed to just copying the file to CD.
If, as TimBeR said, you just see a single ISO file on the disk, you're the proud parent of a bouncing baby coaster- try again.
BTW: there are some basic burning instructions and pointers at Linuxiso.org
