Burn the iso *as an image* to the CD (do not burn as a file). Use any half-decent CD burning software to do so.

If you use Windows to do that, I would recommend Imgburn, it is freeware and easy to use. After installing it just do a right-click on the ISO and choose Burn with Imgburn.

As per AlucardZero. Do we assume you're downloading a Live CD .iso or is your .iso something else?

Play Bonny!

I will be downloading the iso of Centos 5.5 not the live cd. The iso is made of 7 parts and there is no boot.img file to download. I want to install Centos from my hard drive so I need create a boot CD.

The 1st CD ISO contains the boot image code. When you burn the CD as AlucardZero described it will be bootable. If using windows 7 to burn the CD look here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...om-an-ISO-file. If using another version of windows you will need to install a 3rd party tool as already stated. If burning the CD using linux then try k3b.
