I have access to an ISO of Windows 2008 Server on a file server at work.  How do I take that ISO file and then create a bootable Windows 2008 Server DVD?

Burn the ISO with an appropriate tool.  If you are using Vista or later and have a burner, you should be able to right click and burn the image to CD.

If you are using XP or another OS, you'll have to use an appropriate tool.  I believe ISO Burner is free and works under XP.

Alcohol 120% has a free trial and will also burn a .iso file. Just do a search for ISO burner and you will get a plethra of results.

ImgBurn is the best free software I have come accross for burning ISOs, and it's small and easy to use.  Windows 7 also allows a right click option for burn ISO's without any third party software,

Thanks to everyone who offered a suggestion.  Haven't had a chance to try out the other tools suggested, but I appreciate the feedback.
