Strange ISO

I have downloaded an ISO for a Distro called Nexenta using Opera, & but when I try to burn the ISO I find the ISO does not appear on the Burners list.
it appears on my documents folder but the burner Software I am using does not recognise it.
is there something I have to do for my burner to recognise the ISO.
Example would be ,if I downloaded a bz.iso then I would have to run "bunzip2.iso" to un tar it or what ever.
is there something similar I have to do with this ISO as I notice it ends in iso.gz

Thanks 4 that, Then I realized I downloaded it on my Windows DeskTop.
I might try to transfer it to my external drive & then use SuSE to GunZip as my Windows file system is NTFS

The winzip program may be able to decompress the file on your windows machine.

Also, most Linux distributions can mount Windows filesystems (albeit read-only for NTFS) - in this case, you can do that and copy the file over to your home directory of wherever, before gunzipping and burning it.
