I just can't seem to figure this out. I tried AcetonISO, but the file is only 43MB (the folder is ~ 800MB). I also tried a Windows tool called ImgBurn, but same thing happened. How can I add the folder to a bootable ISO image, (it's a remastered Ubuntu)?

The process of constructing an ISO image of a bootable live CD is not quite the same as simply creating an ISO from the contents of a folder. The answers to this question explain a couple of methods for working with live CD images. – ændrük Jan 31 '11 at 3:57
yeah , i read the documentation but it makes references to 9.04 and earlier, however, i managed to edit everything but im stuck at building the iso, no matter what , and how i put it the outcome is the same,i can't build the iso – Uri Herrera Jan 31 '11 at 4:12

I think you should follow the 'How to Remaster Ubuntu' guide that ændrük has pointed to in his comment:

How can I easily remaster Ubuntu?

It explains how to get the folder into an iso image and also how to make the cd bootable (very important for a remastered ubuntu cd). For a normal CD, you need only use bresaro burning software, drag the files inside the folder onto a data cd and then save the cd as an iso (by default if you don't have a burnable cd in the drive, this is what Brasero will offer):
