How is it opened?

I have downloaded Mandriva. It is on my machine. I cannot get it to open. It has been downloaded using Bit comet.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

you may have downloaded an iso file which is not recognized as bootable. Since you downloaded it in the first place, you may want to use unetbootin as a net-installer of mandriva:
