You can use the free ImgBurn to do that. Here is a walkthrough explaining how to create bootable CDs with ImgBurn.

I think the first step is to make sure the .iso file is bootable. From Windows 7, you can burn the .iso right from an Explorer window. Make sure you select the .iso file you want to burn before you try to click the Burn buttons.

If the image is bootable but doesn't show the "Burn disc image" option, see this answer:… – Taylor Nov 13 '12 at 13:44

Assuming you're running a previous version of Windows before Win7:
Infrarecorder is free CD Burning software..

Windows 7 has a built-in ISO burning capability. – Chris S May 4 '10 at 15:57
InfraRecorder works fine in Windows 7. – Kirill V. Lyadvinsky May 4 '10 at 16:26
@Jla3ep: Yes it does, but he's looking to burn an ISO. there's a tool already in Windows, why would you download and install another? – Chris S May 5 '10 at 17:23

From Windows 7, right click the ISO go to "Open With" then select "Windows Disc Image Burner"
