you need to set your cdrom as the first boot device in the bios.

when your computer starts up,the first screen you see will say something like "press F2 to enter set up" or similar.

click here for popular keys to tap

once in the bios look under the advanced tab for boot options or similar,save and exit when set.

with the cdrom in the drive it should boot up and start the install,partition the drive etc.

linux is a bit more fiddly than windows so have a read

Did you burn the images of the DVD and as an image or did you just copy them?

(if you used the DVD as the sourve for the iso's)
