Question suse won't boot

i have suse 9.3 live dvd working fine on my computer, but on my other computer, it won't boot from dvd. the bios is set to boot in this order:
1 floppy disk
2 cd/dvd
3 hard disk
it boots from cd's (like dsl or windows xp setup) but does not seem to on dvds (suse, centos and debian) . is there a boot floppy disk or something for suse live dvd?

No. Did you burn the DVD properly?
