Burn the ISO file to a CD with a burning software and boot your server from that CD to install ESX.

The thing with ISO images is there is no magic. Think of them as a group of files much like a zip except without compression. When you go to burn your iso to CD, make sure you open it as an image, and not just burn the file. Your software should be smart enough to open the iso and write everything to the CD.
