What OS are you running? You have to burn this image to your CD, not the iso file itself. The iso is an image file containing all the files necessary to install the distro. If you just copy the iso file, you will have 1 file on the CDROM and it will be worthless. You need to burn it as an image. The way to do this depends on what software you are using/have. And also for help you'll need to let us know a few things about your system, like what OS you are running, and what program you have to burn CD's.
