What do I do with an iso-file/a CD-image?
Burn it on a CD/DVD

On Windows 7 and newer and most desktop environments for Linux/Unix you should get "Burn on CD/DVD" or a similar menu item when right-clicking on the ISO-file, with which you can burn the image onto a blank disk.

On MAC OSX you can use the "disk utility" to burn an image to disk

Most burning software also offers an option for burning ISO-Images.

Create a bootable USB-stick

Instead of creating a CD or DVD you can also use the image to create a bootable USB-stick. You can use UNetbootin or LinuxLive for example to do so. (Wikipedia has a list of other tools)

How can I use this server as a package source?

The URLs from the HTTP- or FTP-links above will have to be put into the configuration of your respective package manager. The following sections contain example configs for some systems. You can find details on syntax and structure in your distributions manpages and online-documentation.

baseurl can be defined as one single as well as multiple URLs. For using multiple ones it's a good idea to use the fastestmirror-Plugin
