I've bought Earthworm Jim 1&2 from gog.com thinking that i could play it on my old Pentium 2 computer running DOS.

The problem is the game requires it's soundtrack CD, which is suplied by GOG in the form an ISO image with a .inst file that acts as some kind of header(just like a cue file is to a bin image). It contains details about the tracks. But i have no ideea how to burn it. Brasero will burn it, but it's unreadable. K3B doesn't seem to like it.

DOSBox has no problem mounting this type of image, and the game works fine after i've mounted the image.

So the question is, how should i burn this type of file(ISO Audio Image with .inst header)?

I'll also post the contents of the .inst file

It turns out the .inst file was actually a CUE file in disguise, and the other file was a BIN file, not ISO. All i've done is change the extension and K3B reads it.
