Are you sure you have your cdrom  enabled (bootable) in the bios. Usually F2 or F10 when you power on your computer.

If your cdrom drive is bootable and the cd still wont boot you can go to your linux distrubutions web site and download their boot floppy disk.

i.e. www.suse.com , www.redhat.com etc

Have you set the correct bot-order in bios ? (cdrom before c: )
