    Cannot Install because of it being ISO

    I am new user and this is probably a dumb question but I have download ubuntu 8.04 on to a CD and I am trying to install it on my machine that also has Windows Vista. When I start the process of opening to install it says that it cannot find how to read or open it because it is in ISO format? How can I fix this problem?

    There should be an option somewhere to 'burn an iso/image', most burning applications do.
