Default Linux won't boot on startup

I downloaded a FC 5 Boot DVD and have been unable to make my computer recognize it on boot. I have tried hitting enter and c on boot up, but it always just takes me to Windows. I have already set BIOS to boot from the cd drive first and have tried installing the CD's, still no luck. Any suggestions?

Default Re: Linux won't boot on startup

did u burn it as a bootable image? If u burn it just like a normal cd/dvd it won't boot. Which burning software are u using? Atleast Nero is capable of burning bootable images.
