Welcome to Ubuntu!
And what file is it? Is it a CD image (.iso) or an executable (.exe). Where did you download it from.
If its a ISO file, you have to burn it to a CD using a CD burning app. After you burn it to a disk, put the disk into the CDROM and reboot your computer. Your computer will boot in to the CD.

Which file did you download? If it was an "ISO" file, you don't need to extract it, you need to burn it straight to disk using the "burn disk image" option of your favourite software.
