     Oh.  That was because, if one places the cursor over the green
button, a box appears temporarily bearing a line that says, "Click
here to make this CD/DVD bootable".  And, as noted in a different
posting in this thread, that button brings up a browser panel for
choosing an image file (but not displaying .iso files among the
choices) to burn in making the bootable disk.
