That may not be exactly true. If you have an ISO that came from a BFS then you still have to return it to a BFS system. That is the trouble.

Installing the leaked version of BeOS (aka "5.1")
Aside from the somewhat dubious issues surrounding this version of BeOS, installation is very easy. The following instructions will detail how to install 5.1 onto a new partition - this is my preferred way of doing things, as some of your software may not work under 5.1 - or it may crash. If this is the case, you'll be glad you kept your old R5 partition around!
Unpack the file
Assuming that you are already in a BeOS session, double click on the ZIP file, and the Expander utility should launch. Click on "Expand" and after a while, you'll be left with an ISO file. You can now delete the ZIP file if you want. Please note that this ISO is substantially larger than the ZIP file (it's around 300Mb) - so make sure you have enough space.
Burn it to CD
Use your favourite CD-burning package for this, or even the command line (if you feel inclined). If you don't have access to a CD burner, you'll have to follow the instructions here. You can burn it under Windows if you want (or Linux), but I don't recommend you use Adaptec EasyCD creator - it kept complaining about the ISO having errors. Try Nero, or one of the many burners on Linux.
Mount the CD
When you insert the newly burned CD into your drive, it's icon may appear on your desktop - if not, you'll have to mount it manually (you'll have turned off the automount settings)
Run "Installer" from your Be menu
Select the R5.1 CD as the source, and your new BeOS partition as your destination - and let it rip! It'll take about the same time as a normal BeOS install, and once you're done, you can boot into your new system. Make sure you add it to your favourite boot manager (EG:- LILO, BeOS's own "bootman", or whatever else you're using.)
Welcome to 5.1 !
For more information on running 5.1, visit my "Leaked BeOS" page here.
Or use the cue sheet from beosonline for nero and change the paths in the cue sheet to match your own. Remember that you must boot with a R5.1 floppy and the Athlon/Duron7 deal is still a bug you need to work around.
Another site says this, "
To install on a dedicated partition :
Extract the OS image from the .zip and burn it (PersonalEdition's Burner works well, just add a 'data track')
Write the boot image on a floppy disk (dd, rawrite...)
Boot with the floppy, press Space, choose the right boot disk (in this case the CD-ROM)
Now use the Installer to install your new Dano
