    10.04 server is a command-line-only version. No desktop. It's also over five years old and past end-of-life. No more security updates.

    Consider 12.04 desktop instead. Free. Good for three more years. http://download.ubuntu.com
    Very good instructions on copying the .iso onto a bootable USB stick are on that page, too.

    If you really want to burn to a disc, you will generally need a DVD - most desktop .iso images are over 700MB.

    use imgburn. google it. it's free and light weight. burn the iso to disk with it. boot from cd. follow prompts.

    If your computer comes with Windows 8 then it has UEFI and not BIOS. Though support is shorter you might face less trouble if you go for 13.10.
