CD-ROM Installer

I have a copied Red Hat Linux 9.0 CD-ROM (burned using Nero software in Windows XP). I want to install Linux to my home PC (dual boot with the XP). I tried but my CD-ROM drive cant read the installer. My questions are:

1. Is the installer readable in Linux though it was burned in Windows environment?

2. Do I need to look for a Linux driver for my CD-ROM drive which is a DVD-CD/RW LG Brand.

you must burn it in the ISO format, not the Windowz joilet format.
