As overburn can cause damage to some older CD-burners, you have to enable it manually in the software.

In Nero 6 (Burning Rom) you can find the option here:
file -> preferences -> expert features -> overburn
In Nero 7 (Burning Rom) they probably found 'options' a better name, so you can find it:
file -> options -> expert features -> overburn

Enable overburning, enter the size of the CD you've bought and start burning as normal.
