If you are on Windows, use a free burning program called starburn, 
install and run it, choose 'burn image' find the ISO that you downloaded 
and click burn, make sure you burn it slow (4x or 8x) then pop it back 
into the drive and reboot.
At the first boot screen hit the DEL key or F12 this will take you into 
the BIOS, look for boot options and make sure that it is set to boot 
from CD, save and exit the BIOS it will reboot and start to read the 
CD/DVD. From here it is mostly self-explanitory.

Have fun :)
