Open the .dmg which will mount the disk image.
Follow the on-screen instructions, should be pretty straight forward, I believe it says "Install OS X" or "Install OS X Lion"

To make it a clean install:

Burn your .dmg file on a CD or put it on a USB stick/external hard drive. There are heaps of tutorials how to do this, like here
