Cant change bios to boot Fedora install cds


I am installing fedora on a server which is very old compaq and has no user interactive bios so i cant get the computer to boot from cd. I use a dos bootdisk and can view the cdrom with the fedora file on it . Is there a way i can start the installation from the dos prompt?
Thanks In advance

If you can boot from a floppy, try smart boot manager. Its very good and can boot anything bootable.
