[gNewSense-users] New to GNU Linux

I'm just entering the world of Linux.  I've downloaded the FSF project's version gNewSense and am stumped.  I tried the USB thing for Windows and just like the doc says, "It does not work." 

I have no idea how to begin from within GNU Linux, even though that is second next starting point.  I've downloaded the ISO "CD" and the extractor to be able to see it, but see nothing that is executable. 

Actually, I have an old ACER 9" with XT on it and thought it fun to experiment with Linux by putting it on that machine, as a first trial.  I'd like to get off the Windows grid, but the change will be with constant testing of the waters for suitable applications. 

I'm certain starting up will all be clear soon.
