You said you tried to boot to the CD... Then you say that the ISO was extracted from the program.
I'm thinking you downloaded the selfextracting EXE file and burned that to CD. What you want to do is burn that ISO as an image to the CD, not as a file. You should then see a directory structure on the CD instead of a single file. You can use whatever burning program you use to burn the image or use something like ImageBurn -> http://www.imgburn.com/
As far as using the tools/programs on the CD, many are self explanatory and other are not, I suggest reading up on the tools before using them as some can cause data loss if used incorrectly or without caution.
Good luck and post back if you have further issues.
