Iso burning - OS X

I've got a slight problem. I've downloaded the 3 Redhat Iso's from and OS X seems to automatically mount the disk image. I've burned it as an ISO 9660 with Toast, tried to burn it as a disk image but it just reverts it back to Mac - PC hybrid. Tried that too and still can't get it to boot. I have changed the bios drive order in my pc, btw (Dell Dimension 4600). Here is a link to a screenshot of what the three different iso's look like on my OS X desktop. And they are different for some reason they have the same name.. (sorry I had to reformat.. I'm not a spammer, I understand the rule however I need to post this relevant url)

(however when I did burn the mac - pc hybrid disk I did change the name to a more descriptive one. would that effect the ability for it to be bootable?)

Thanks for the help.
