CD FAQ: Changes to "How do I write an ISO image under Windows?"

The attached diff is an attempt to tidy up the section on writing an ISO
image under Windows. It changes some links, deletes a section or two and
generally tries to adapt the section to the overall look and feel of the
CD FAQ page.

The first entries are described in brackets as "Freeware", whatever that
means. My preference would be "Provided free of charge" in the text
body, as is done for the last entry, but I've just deleted any reference
to free of cost throughout the section as presumably a user can work it
out for herself,

Some headings are of the form "Something from Somewhere". There may be a
reason for this but it is not emulated thoughout this section or the
previous one. Why not "Brasero from Philippe Rouquier and Luis Medinas"?
I've adjusted the headings.

Adaptec/Roxio Easy-CD Creator

The Adaptec link doesn't lead anywhere useful. The Roxio link gets you
Creator NXT. There is no sign of Easy-CD Creator so the validity of the
description is questionable. I've deleted this entry.

Nero from Ahead Software

Why do we need to know where the software is from? Isn't a link

WinOnCD Power Edition from CeQuadrat

The link was dead for me. Section deleted.

CD Extreme from Sony

The link connects with a home page. I've changed it to one where the
software can be downloaded.
