An ISO file is a format that is an exact image of a CD-ROM. You burn it to a CD-ROM with Roxie or magic ISO or Linux or any number of CD-ROM software packages. Linux distributions are ISO files, so most people know how to deal with them. You certainly don't need to know anything about files inside the ISO. The boot sector takes care of booting files.


LoseThos is 64-bit, so don't bother on old hardware.
