First, you have to burn the CD as an .iso file.  Probably in your cd burning application you have some special option for isos.

after that, you'll be ready to boot with your just burnt cd.

This is one of the best iso burning programs I have found for windows, and its free.

Just download, install then once you start the program, you tell it where your iso file is and click burn.
