    First of all, it's not a Lindows issue since booting the CD should happen before any OS related activities.

    Make sure the CD-ROM is set to boot before the hard disk in BIOS setup.

    You have to press a key to start Windows Setup from the CD so look out for a prompt telling you to do so.
