    An .iso file is an image. There are other types of image files as well.

    You can burn this image onto a CD/DVD with most popular software(such as Nero) using the "burn image" option.

    Then the CD/DVD is inserted and run on your PC just as a store-bought disc would work. (e.g. games or software)

    Daemon tools(et al) is a piece of software that will "virtually" load the .iso file, essentially running it as if inserting a disc into a CD/DVD drive.

    To understand more of these basics, check out www.howstuffworks.com or start Googling and you will find plenty of info.

    good luck
