You would use any burning software you have that supports burning an ISO to disc. This is not the same as simply burning the file though - you must make sure that you select the option to burn the ISO (sometimes it's called burn backup to CD).

Pretty much every program out there now will let you do this, and I think even Window's built-in burning tool will do this. I've always had good luck with Nero, so you might want to grab the free version of it.

I'm not sure with Nero but you want to look for the option to burn an image. Then direct it to the iso you downloaded. Set the burn speed to 4x max.

Make sure you change your BIOS settings to boot from the CD Drive before your hard drive other wise instead of booting from the cd you'll be booting your normal OS.

If you have the .iso image saved to your HDD, if you right click on the icon, you should see a 'Write To Disc' option.

Apparently, this is a clean and simple way of burning your .iso without any complications.
