    .iso = images of a legit DVD, CD, in Wii hacking means games.
    IOS = Input/Output System, they are little OS functioning as base of each application on the Wii,

    Eg. the WiiShop Channel (current one) use IOS61,
    the new HBC1.0.3 use IOS61 too,
    the SysMenu3.2 uses IOS30,
    the SysMenu4.0 uses IOS40,
    SSBB uses IOS36,
    RockBand games use IOS37,
    NFS:Undercover IOS55,
    Punch Out IOS53,
    Animal Crossing IOS38,
    Zelda TP IOS9
    ...and so on and on

    So basically all you need to know is burn .iso's and play them as long as you have the right IOS's to do so(or cIOS rather) which is a custom IOS usually based off of IOS 36, 37, or 38 that installs to an IOS above 200 (generally IOS 249). All other IOS's are stuff used by other things by the Wii, and should under no circumstances be deleted. You may however use certain programs to downgrade them or install different versions OVER them (not uninstalling and installing the new one). However you should only do stuff to your IOS if you're 100% sure you know that's what you need to do to it or you have bootmii installed to boot2 and have a verified NAND backup of your wii.
