As far as I know, you can't, unless the .iso you grabbed was already
made bootable. There might be some DEEP MAGIC that will allow you to
reverse to process, but I don't know what the spell is.;-)
You could try mounting it as a loop device, copying all the files somewhere
else, building yourself a bootdisk image for a floppy, then make
yourself a fresh new .iso file with mkisofs using the bootdisk image
with it, but you'll probably have to ruin a few blank cd's getting it to
I would say: burn the image you have, and see if it boots.
Otherwise yer SOL.
