The keyboard has nothing to do with the CD.  Did you go into the BIOS and set the CD as the primary boot device then HDD second?

Yea but now when I try to go to bios the keyboard not working until it pass that stage
I think there is something wrong with your keyboard not responding.  PS2 is very old :)  Try cleaning it first.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I got a usb keyboard and same problem

It not allowing me to boot to cd when that time reaches

It just says boot to cd and the cursor just blinks
So the keyboard works fine after it goes into the O.S but not at boot.  Sounds like somekind of bios irregularity.  Can you go into the motherboard an reset the CMOS?

Have you tried more than one bootable CD? Have you confirmed this CD boots in a different machine. When a CD will not boot sometimes it will fail on all PC's (indicates the CD is not bootable), other times it may boot in one PC but not another which could indicate the CD drive is not reading the data correctly or there is a problem with the PC. I have seen a situation where a CD will not boot from a drive but using a different drive (internal or usb external) may result in a successful boot up.

maybe there is a bios reset jumper, otherwise you may need to take out the bios battery, and put it back in - verify also that it has still 3 V min, or replace it (cost= < 1$)

also - when the pc boots - do you see any lights on the keyboard?
