Partition Wizard, making a bootable CD

Having trouble with this seemingly simple operation

I have downloaded the pwhe.iso file as suggested in one the tutorials, I have used Nero 6 to burn an ISO CD, added the downloaded file pwhe.iso then selected a boot menu from a newly formatted floppy in my A: drive.
I changed the boot in the BIOS to my CD drive and when it booted it ended in a dos screen with A:\ and a flashing cursor. I entered pwhe.iso but that did not work.

I then repeated the burning with the boot menu selected as UK 'Locale' this time on booting the message appeared:

1 FD 1.44mb System Type-(06)
starting Caldera DR-DOS
EMM386 3.27 Copyright (c) 1992, 1998 Caldera, Inc. All rights reserved

Still no boot up. I now have a few new 'Coasters' for my mugs.

I have as I see it done everything right but got it wrong somewhere, any clues as to what to do would be very helpful

I burned at 52 and at 32 speeds to see if this made a difference, it didn't. All disks were verified after burning.

Try using ImgBurn The Official ImgBurn Website and burn at x4 speed see if that helps.Make sure you use a cd not a dvd as it works best that way.
Make sure bios priority is set to boot from the cd first.The cd should just boot to the PW splash screen, just follow the on screen prompts.

Used a CD-RW as I have enough coasters at the moment

No problems at all! Used Imgburn and now I can boot with the CD-RW into Partition Wizard.

Thanks for the help, so much for Nero 6 eh!!
