If there is no option in the BIOS to make the CD drive the first boot device, then you will probably have to use a W98 bootdisk with CDROM support, and run the setup program manualy.

Can we have some more info on the system. ie: model number, BIOS number, motherboard type or anything at all?

IBM Netvistas should be bootable from the CDROM if you get into the BIOS.  F1 at boot time should get you in.
