Angry Before I Begin...

I just shelled out $350 (don't laugh, it's a whole lot for me) buying a refurbished AMD Athlon 2000+ XP system with Windows XP Home Edition pre-installed on it.

What I want to do is choose a distribution (actually, I already have -- I want to start with Knoppix and then figure something else out later), download it and burn it.

I have a good connection -- my problem is that I need CD burning program (the one that came with Windows only makes AUDIO CDs, and the built in WinXP burner only makes DATA, but can't use ISOs) that I can get for free, that runs on Windows (yes, I realize this is a Linux forum -- I just thought you guys could help), and can burn ISO images.
