Starting a ThinClient Server

Hey Guys this is my first post on the board, I am currently working on a project for school as well as volunteering for a non profit institution. What I am trying to do is install a linux thin client server for a k-12 software. I downloaded the 4 iso files, which I think are cd images. They are all finished downloading but what program do I open them with. I am still very novice with the whole KDE and linux stuff. Also it seems like all the files that I'm downloading (for example. AIM) the linux OS doesn't know what to open them with and niether do I. Just for u guys information I'm running Fedora Core 2, thanks guys

Um... iso files are iso9660 CD images. You should burn them to CD. Or you can mount them locally like so:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdaX /mnt/iso -o loop

Yup, Thoreau is right. The iso's are just images. So, for example I use Nero.

1. Open up Nero
2. Select 'Burn Image'
3. Select the iso file
4. Click 'Burn'

Once the burn is done, you'll see all the files there on CD. Pop it in your cdrom and begin installing
