Windows XP has built-in capability for burning folders/files onto a CD ROM. Use the Recording tab in the CD-ROM drive properties dialog to configure the options:

However, it doesn't have the capability to burn ISO images. On the MS site it was suggested that ISO Recorder would do the job. I tried it on two different machines and both failed with "generic error". I'm running Windows XP professional SP2 on both.

Update: Actually the above error for ISO Recorder was caused by a monitoring program the company installed to block CD-ROM write access. Although unsuccessful, ISO Recorder actually went further than other programs. cdburn.exe from the Windows 2003 Resource Kit died at 0% without emitting any error message.
