That will be compressed then, you need to use ]winzip or ]winrar to uncompress that file first

will most likely be either a exe or a iso

will need to unzip to find out

if its a exe can just burn the extracted folder direct to a data cd if its a iso can burn it as a image

do you have nero?

hmm is there one with the name of the game?

failing that view the folder details and see if theres one which is a image or a application file
(in xp at top of folder click view then details) not sure if vista the same

if all else fails if yer friend knows what they are doin just burn the folder to a cd and let them figure out how to install
