I think you are asking how to change the BIOS so the machine will boot from a CD.

As the machine starts there will be a message saying something like "Hit del to enter set up" Do what it says and you will go into the BIOS.

Using the cursor arrows navigate the menus. As all BIOS are different I can't say exactly where it will be but there will be an entry saying boot sequence or similar. It will probably be set to:
First = Floppy
Second = Hard Disk
Third = CD Rom

You need to change this so the first is CD ROM this is normally done through the enter and page up/down keys although there are normally instructions on the page explaining how this is done

If it is not this can you try and give a complete explanation of what you are after.

You will need to use a system / boot disk that will allow CD Rom support.

Did you have supplied or create a system / boot disk?
