Asterisk@Home: Beginning Installation

I have downloaded Asterisk@Home v2.7 as an .iso file.  In order to get this on a CD-ROM, I need to extract it, so I downloaded isoBuster.  I can't extract the files properly, and I don't understand much about Linux, so I am not sure what to do here.

How do I extract these files so I can install the VoIP server?

Thanks,

Stank

You need to burn the iso image onto the CD.
You need to use a good CD burning software like Nero or any other provided by the CD-RW manufacturer.

That's the problem.  When I extract the thing from isoBuster, it makes all of the files in a subdirectory of asteriskathome/  I am not sure what is going on here.

IsoBuster is a highly specialized yet easy to use CD and DVD data recovery tool.  It supports all CD and DVD formats and all common CD and DVD file-systems.  Start up IsoBuster, Insert a CD or DVD, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media.

In short it is not a CD burner but data recovery software.
You needn't extract directly from iso image the CD Burner s/w will do that for you.
You just add the iso image when the CD Burner ask for the file to burn on the CD.

The problem is that I am not using any CD Burner software - I am using Windows to do it.  I simply drag my files to the cd-drive and windows loads everything.  Is it possible to do this without a program such as Nero?  I don't have it, just IsoBuster!

no beacuse the sector information is also stores in iso image that can only be
handled by a cd burner s/w.
