Sorry, but I have no idea what tool to use to "unpack" an .ISO file. To
quote the instructions at <http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/>,
The desktop CD allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your
computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later.
This type of CD is what most people will want to use. You will need
at least 384MiB of RAM to install from this CD.
There are two images available, each for a different type of computer:
PC (Intel x86) desktop CD
For almost all PCs. This includes most machines with
Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run
Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems
based on Intel processors. Choose this if you are at all unsure.
So I clicked on the link "PC (Intel x86) desktop CD
which led to an ISO file. My current "main" machine (a Dell OptiPlex
GX1 running Win2000Pro) has no idea what to do with that file.
