You need to use an image burning application. Most CD/DVD burning software,
such as Nero, supports burning an ISO file to a CD/DVD as an image. There
are also free solutions, such as ISORecorder, available from http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm
. I've used both of them.
And, FWIW, Windows 7 supports direct burning of ISO images to DVD.
