Actually, that's an .img file designed to be used with flash drives, which the OP said he can't use.

The "genisoimage" utility has a option named "-hard-disk-boot" which "Specifies that the boot image used to create El Torito bootable CDs is a hard disk image. The image must begin with a master boot record that contains a single partition."

I haven't tried it, but it sounds promising for converting a bootable hard drive image into a bootable ISO.

Or you could use a regular Ubuntu ISO, and then install the "ubuntu-netbook-remix" package afterwards.

You should be able to use a standard 9.04 CD and then install the UNR interface afterward - Netbook-Launcher for the interface and Maximus for the full screen/taskbar effect.

When you get that far post up here again if you are still having problems or need to figure out how to make them launch on startup, etc.

Granted - it won't be the full remix - I think the GDM login screen is different too, and you might need to install a different theme, but nothing that can't be overcome.

Edit: DOH! We were saying the same thing at the same time! I didn't realize there was a ubuntu-netbook-remix package - that makes things quite easy!!

Out of curiosity...why does it matter if its an IMG or ISO? I know for a fact I've burned IMGs onto discs just the same as ISOs. In fact if I remember correctly you can even change the .IMG to a .ISO and burn it normally if your program doesn't support .IMGs :P

The UNR image file is a hard drive image, with a Master Boot Record and a partition table and a FAT32 filesystem in it's single partition. It's not anything like a ISO filesystem image.

If you've burned .img files to CDs successfully by renaming them to .iso, that's because they were actually ISO filesystem images.

The problem is that .img is a ambiguous suffix. The UNR image should probably have a suffix like .ibmpcdrvimg (IBM PC drive image ).
