installing fedora 9 from an iso image

Hi all,
I have just downloaded fedora 9 (3.3G). It is an iso image file.
I could not install linux from it.
What I have done:
1. Burn dvd from the iso image

But after burning, only 2 directory and 2 doc are found. The directories are : liveOS and isolinux. Both the directories and the doc do not seem to help in installing.

Can anyone help in telling me what to do with the downloaded image.

You are supposed to be able to boot from the iso image disk and then follow the installation instructions. Whether the fact that you have burned the image on a DVD rather than a CD is a problem, is unclear.
Have fun.
