So what do you have exactly, if it's not an ISO? Some OS, you need to execute the binary file at the command prompt just like the old days. Type "setup" and then "enter". So a bit more information will be good.

assuming that pc-linux has a live-usb i think you can use something like unetbootin to generate a bootable usb drive that you can boot into and demonstrate the os prior to making changes to your internal harddrive.

Above is what you should download from the site below. That particular iso file uses KDE, you can also use Mate desktop. Where did you get pclinuxos and how/why unzip?

If you are using a windows operating system, you can either burn the iso file as an image to a DVD or use software such as LiLi or pendrivelinux on windows to put it on a flash drive.
