When your computer is booting initially with the CD-ROM are you seeing
any messages on the screen or are you locking up immediately after the
post?  Is your CD-ROM being accessed at all? 

What program did you use to make the cds?  Did you copy the iso on to
the CD? or did you make cd from the iso image?
