ISO Instructions 
An ISO-9660 image file is an exact representation of the original installation media, including the content and the logical format. The most common use of an image file is to write it to a blank DVD Recordable disc resulting in an identical copy of the original DVD including file name and volume label information. ISO Images can also be extracted directly to a file location by many Recordable DVD utilities. For more information about image files, please visit the
MSDN FAQ.

The SharePoint product team has just sanitized and posted a tool to help push sample data into SharePoint 2007 for load testing scenarios.
You can get it here : http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/301ed832-95da-4251-b266-7be6288f7ea01033.mspx?mfr=true or

Bear in mind that this is not an officially Microsoft released product and is a community supported tool. Please don't contact product support with any issues you may experience using the tool.

From Codeplex workspace:

The SharePoint test data population tool is available as a command-line executable program that extracts information about how to populate the server from an XML configuration file, and calls Microsoft .NET assembly: WSSDWLib.dll.
