ummm what link did you use? - should only need two files - a md5 to verify and an iso file. You burn the .iso file and it will extract the file on to the DVD so you can use it to boot.

- Hi - the VT link is direct to an *.iso - ie there is nothing to 'unzip'

Suggest you start up your burning application, use its option to choose to burn an image file, & point it at the *.iso you downloaded.
