That's a FAQ...  You don't burn the ISO file onto a disc as a file, you
use the ISO file as your template for burning a disc.  It contains the
entire contents of the disc, as it needs to be written to the disc.

You use your "burn from ISO", or "burn from image" feature.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, all using Gnome
 in case that's important to the thread.)
