Description of problem:
When I attempt to burn the boot.iso file (the 6Mb minimum boot image for FC5), Nautilus recognizes that I want to burn an image file, but then fails with an error message: "No such file or directory, The file 'boot.iso' is not a valid disc image."

Using file reveals that the .iso file is in fact valid:

[bshotts@twin7 ~]$ file Downloads/boot.iso
Downloads/boot.iso: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data 'Fedora Core     ' (bootable)

and K3B has no problem with it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download boot.iso
2. Open CD/DVD Creator and drag file into window
3. Click "Write to Disc"

Actual Results:  Fails, displays error message

Expected Results:  Written iso image file to CD-R

Ok, I was able to reproduce this. 

Burning works fine when using the "Write to disc" menu item in the context menu
of the .iso image on the desktop.

When dragging it to the dvd creator, and pressing "Write to disc", I get
a dialog asking me if I want to write a cd containing that image as a single
file, or write the image to disc. And if I select to write the image, it 
complains as you said.
