Answers :

Get a program to burn cd's... nero or magic iso (paid or hacked versions are needed)
\015\012with the executable file you downloaded you create either a boot floopy disk or an iso file
\015\012since it sounds you're trying to use a cd as your booting option you need to create the iso file with executable file (.exe file) and with nero, or magiciso you can burn a bootable cd from the .iso file (image file)
\015\012
\015\012here are some instructions and a program you can download for free to burn an .iso image into a cd

\015\012
\015\012once you have your floppy booting disk or your cd burnt and ready don't forget to change the booting order in your bios to have the floppy disk or the cd as the first option when booting your computer...(so the computer tries to boot from that device instead of your hdd) you need to read you computer documentation on how to go into the bios when you first start... usually the bios first screen message will tell you to press and f key to go into setup or something like that.. once you go there... go into the boot menu with the arrow keys and change the booting order
\015\012
\015\012this will give you an idea on how to change the booting order

\015\012ESD is electroc-static discharge... as you move and touch things your body gets electrical charge.. when you touch stuff you discharge the electrical currrent that you built up and if you're accidentaly discharging this current on an object that can't handle it you may be frying that object...
\015\012
\015\012it's like when you're out in the cold and dry outdoor.. you come into the house and you touch something metallic.. you get shocked... is the same.. what happens is with components inside your computer, you gotta be extra-careful because with discharges that you may not even feel you may end up frying a component and you may not even know it, until the motherboard starts acting up on you intermittently or with no apparent no reason.
\015\012
\015\012general rule.. when opening the case or dealing with components inside your computer ground yourself with a antiestatic wrist band or if you don't have one at least touch your power supply unit before touching anything else inside your computer. (that's how your ground yourself)
