Burn a CD or a DVD
To be able to burn an ISO image to a CD or a DVD, you will need a relevant media, a DVD/CD-RW multi-drive, and a software to make the drive burn the downloaded ISO file on a CD or DVD. Of course if you burn to DVD, the drive has to be fit for this use (on old models some could burn only CD-R or CD-RW, but not DVD).
Under Windows, you can use InfraRecorder, or another software, if you already have a burning software installed. You just need to check the setup to make the software burn as ISOimage instead of data.
Under GNU/Linux, here are a few available applications meant for burning : K3B in the KDE environnement, Gnomebaker, Graveman, Brasero, in Gnome desktops, Xfburn in Xfce desktops, and at last, the great wodim tool, which replaces cdrecord, in text mode, for users who like it to be simple.
Here a few command lines, if you would want to give it a try
wodim -v /home/alice/bento-openbox-14.04.4.iso
wodim -v -dao dev=/dev/sr0 /home/alice/bento-openbox-14.04.4.iso
In both cases, you may have to adapt the above commandes by changing the path to the ISO image, the name of the ISO image, or sometimes the name of the targeted peripheral, according to the needs. (This last options is usually not needed, as wodim manages to detect it).
If you don’t know how to point to the file using the path to the files, starting from the root of the system, or from your /home/user, you may want to check this documentation (and easy one, fit for any beginner): http://linuxreviews.org/beginner/
