That ISO is mostly supposed to go to a DVD, but they do in fact make "bigger" 
CDs, they're called CD-R90 and CD-R99. Whether they'll work with your drive or 
not, I don't know, not all drives support them, and as they aren't defined by 
the CD-R standard, manufacturers are reluctant to guarantee compatibility with 
them. Another option is to use the so-called "Mode 2 / XA", which cheaps out on 
the error correction to gain space. Not exactly recommended for reliability, 
but it should make that image fit.
