SACD-ISO or FLAC

Sometimes, when I want to DL something, which allowed me to choose between:
* PS3 Rip, SACD-ISO, DSD64 2.0, 1-bit/2.8224 MHz
* FLAC (converted w/ foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz
Generally, due to my listening is device is a Computer and iPod, to DL FLAC should be enough for me, right?
If I burned the SACD-ISO,
* is it able to be burned? How? ... I'm using Ubuntu.
* after it was burned, is it able to played in conventional CD player? or just in SACD player?

SACD is lossy format where PCM is lossless format.

Different topic is where SACD is only one source available - then i see no difference in terms of quality between those two (as SACD need to be converted in a lossy way to lossless PCM) - PCM can be used to create subformats where SACD need to be always converted first to PCM.

I have a hard time considering anything "lossy" at that point; while it has to be transformed to be played through regular audio channels, so does 44.1kHz need to be transformed to the 48kHz base output rate, and the loss of each is pretty equivalent. (Far below any hearing threshold.) Especially if the work was originally mastered in DSD and then transformed to PCM for the alternative download, which isn't exactly common, but not rare either.
