So I bought a new computer (the parts are still in various boxes around
the house) and
downloaded a copy of Ubuntu 6.10 onto my PC. Burnt the copy onto a DVD
(to large to use
a CD being .73 Gig).
It seems that I am completely clue-free on where to go next. The suffix
of the file is .iso. So
how do I open it to see what is inside? No utilities recognize that
suffix. Since DVD drivers
don't come with Linux, is there a way to get it onto a CD?

I use a software product for Windows from Paragon Software Group specifically for this purpose.
It is small dedicated and efficient. I hope all these suggestions help :-)
