It suggests one can boot off the self-hosted CDrom.
I downloaded 6.3.0-qnx6-200405141702.iso and burned a CD with windows
cdburn.exe. When I boot from that CD on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, no
image is found and the boot reverts to the disk boot.

Question: Is there really a bootable image on
6.3.0-qnx6-200405141702.iso? If so, how can I boot it?

I have burned a 6.3 CD from the downloaded image and YES it is bootable.
When you look at the CD do you see a single file ‘whatever.iso’? If
so, then you burned the CD incorrectly.
The ISO image contains a complete multi-level file system. When the CD
is mounted you should see that file system.
