How to start from bootable CD? Help please?

Sounds funny but I don't know how to start my computer from external CD! I know something must be done with BIOS, some key combination must be used and so on...
Everything in this area is ( for me) hard to understand .
If something goes wrong I just don't know how to start from external disk!

Please, help me with foolproof practical steps (shorcuts, keys, etc)
needed to start my laptop which runs on XP pro from a bootable CD I have.

Thanks in advance and apologies for my silly question...
