I am building my first system:

MSI 875P Neo
P4E 2.8 Prescott
2 x DDR400 256MB
SATA 36MB  10.000rpm
IDE 40 MB (1 Master)
IDE 80 MB (2 Master)
DVD-R NEC (1 Slave)
Sapphire 9600 graphics card
Thermaltake Xaser V case

Turn on power; get Cool Master screen; then "initialising"; then Boot failure -- insert disk in A:
If I hit F11 or Ctrl-S it attempts to read DVD-R and then says "non-bootable disk"

I never get to BIOS or set up.

Help!!!!  Thanks in Advance!
