Angry RH 7.1 to 8.0 upgrade

Hi - am trying to upgrade my dual boot MS/Linux RH7.1 to 8.0 to hopefully fix a SIS PCI fast ethernet issue and cannot quite figure out how to accomplish this. I down loaded .iso images, tried to copy to a CD but only get the one file (psyche-i386-discx.iso). I used B's gold but do not see how to take apart the .iso image file. Also down loaded the boot files but I can't boot off of that CD (original RH7.1 CD1 boots fine). Also mounted my windows c parition to linux hoping that I can access the image files from there - but still cannot figure out how to upgrade and make use of these new image files. What am I doing wrong? Any help appreciated.

Skip the part about creating the iso image - you already downloaded one of those.
