You don't burn the ISO image onto the CD, you use the ISO image to burn
a new data CD.  There is a big difference you know.  The ISO image
contains the information necessary to create a CD.  The burning app
knows how to use the ISO image to do so.  However, if you simply burn
the ISO image onto a CD as you would simply store it onto your hard
drive, it is useless for installation.
