"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have Windows 7, it is built-in ... simply right-click the ISO and Copy/Burn Image to CD/DVD.

Alternatively, you can download ISO Recorder and follow the same instructions as above, regardless of your OS.

CDBurnerXP is another good software to burn DVD's with.

Really what you want to do is get the ISO to be a bootable DVD.

Whatever your burning software is you can look in  the help files. What you want to do is make bootable DVD from ISO.

Depending on where he gets the ISO, it may already be bootable.  If you download a 2008 DVD ISO from Microsoft, it is already bootable ... just burn to DVD.

Not always true just downloaded one this past week from MS if I didn't select option to create bootable DVD the DVD wouldn't startup.

I've never seen that before.  Every DVD I've ever downloaded from eopen and MSDN has been bootable.  Not sure what the point would even be of having a non-bootable ISO.
