I am new to downloading/installing Vista beta OS images, and need some very
basic guidance. Build 5384 downloaded without incident; however, it is a file
type .ISO and doesn't self-install when double-clicked. So does it needs to
be burned to a DVD, or is there another app that will do install the image
for me?

Also, I just want to confirm that Ultimate 5384 uses the key category "Vista
Ulitmate 5270 and up Product Keys".

To install 5384, you need keys from 5342 and up. I use
http://www.daemon-tools.cc or NERO Image drive.

You have to burn the iso (as DVD image, don't burn it as a file) then
boot on this DVD.
About keys, I read on microsoft.public.windows.vista.general you need a
key for at least 5365 and up, so you'll have to generate a new key on
microsoft connect.
