    All you need to to is use any old CD burning software (Nero or Adaptec come to mind), and tell it to create a disk from an image, and then point it at the .iso file. This will create the files on the CD.

    If you just burn the one huge iso file onto the cdrom, you have made a coaster :)

    I see, but there are some options after that. Should I check the checkbox entitled "raw data"? (Nero 5.5, not mentioned below)


    ---------------------------------
    Start Nero
    Choose the menu command "File"->"Burn CD image"
    Choose as file type: all files (*.*)
    Select the ISO image file
    Now you will see a dialog, asking you, if you want to supply detailled
    image parameters. This is necessary, since Nero needs to know
    exactly, what format the image file has to be able to burn it correctly.
    Enter the following parameters:
    - Mode 1 (assuming, that you created a mode 1 image)
    - 2048 bytes per sector (corresponds to a mode 1 sector)
    - 0 bytes header and trailer (assuming, the image contains
    only "pure" ISO data and no other special header
    or trailer)
    - no swapping or scrambling (assuming, that the file contains
    bytes in the correct order to be written without word swapping)
    Click on "burn" and (for safety considerations) use an empty cdr.
