I used a different burning software and it worked.  thanks
FYI, when you buy an iso from MS, you can install it from a usb as well...

http://store.microsoft.com/help/iso-tool
windows 7 usb/dvd download tool is for convertering an .iso onto a bootable USB stick and not for burning the .iso
It looks like the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool can also be used to burn the ISO to DVD.  

3. Select USB Device to create a copy on a USB flash drive or select DVD disk to create a copy on a DVD disk.
I agree with mitrum, ImgBurn is the way to go.  I have experimented with several free ISO apps and this is the easiest way to burn an ISO.
