It's a disc image. You need an .iso file burner. Nick mentioned some

So let me get this straight... one downloads a ".iso" file on Windows,
and by default it DOESN'T know that the appropriate thing to do with this
is to burn it as a disc image onto a CD?  Sheesh! :^)
It doesnt know what to do with every file. It has no disc burner software included, so it has no response for .iso unless you install burner software.

(who downloaded a random .deb file the other day, and just right-clicked
it in KDE and selected "install" ;^) )
In windows that would be a .cab file. It does know what to do with that.
Hmmm does Linux default setup know what to do with an iso?

religion, and operating systems.
