check the hardware/BIOS

First try to connect a different DVD drive & try to boot from the DVD. If it still doesnt work.. Then Upgrade the BIOS to the latest BIOS version available for your system.
This should fix ur problem.

you need to set the bios to boot from dvd /cd
this is a dell with xp on it ??
hit f8( every 1/2 sec) during boot ( to xp) then from the onscreen menu .It should be f2 or f12
this will get you into the settings .
