Got ISO how to burn and use it

I got an ISO image for vicidial and now I need to know how can I install it. Should I just burn it on to the cd and put it in the machine I want it to reformat or do I need to change the iso format.

You can local mount it using the mount -o loop option as in  the prior example.

However, simply with the cdrecord command you'll be done:

cdrecord vicidial.iso

et Voila!

However, if you're familiar with GUIs just type:

k3b & 

in the command line and you're ready to go ..

Look at the instructions for burning an ISO here.

You don't need to burn the ISO to use it, unless you were planning to boot from it. You can use a loopback mount:-
First of all, create a mount point:

# mkdir -p /mnt/iso

Now, mount your image. Let's say your image is /usr/iso/asterisk.iso:

# mount  -oro,loop   -tiso9660   /usr/iso/asterisk.iso   /mnt/iso

You can now access the contents of your image at /mnt/iso.

You need to be root to do the above commands (hence the # prompt). You can add your image to /etc/fstab so that any user can mount it in future. An example line from my fstab:

/usr/iso/slackware-12.1-install-d1.iso     /home/dunc/slk1    iso9660    user,noauto,loop,ro    0    0
