Uh, the file is an ISO. You need a CD Burning program to burn it to a CD. Then you can use it.

Yup. Go to StartSmart and Burn Image to Disc under Backup.

You have to Burn Image to Disc...

Yeah, you would put XP Lite on a disc and boot it up. If you wanted to install it over everything, though, you would have to set the CD-ROM as the first thing to boot in your BIOS.

To boot BIOS, you need to press DEL.

You should be able to format the partition you install it to. Thus, I would recommend creating a partition and installing it to that.

I would think not.

Uh, you need a program that can burn ISO's. You don't make a bootable disc.
