I posted this to the NFBCS list a few months ago:

I found a nice accessible utility for burning ISOs in Windows. I guess you 
can copy files to a CD in Windows XP by merely dragging them to the drive. 
But burning ISOs is a problem. However, I found a utility that does what 
Windows probably should do: if you right click on a ISO file one of the 
menu selections is to burn a CD. Very nice. And the dialog box that appears 
when you click that option works with JFW.

Only problem... the utility is still in beta. Seems to work though.  oh, 
and the web site is kind of disorganized. I'll provide a download page and 
a documentation page...

PS: I have absolutely no connection with the developer of this tool.
