what do you mean extract?
If you want to look at your iso image use:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop,ro afile.iso /a/mount/point (can be anywhere)
If you want to burn it to a cd use cdrecord.
An iso is just for burning to a cd. That's all it's for as far as I know. (Not an expert, but struggled with this a lot)
I found k3b made an iso and toc file ok but couldn't burn it to cd, I had to do it in a console. Do you get that too?
