problem installing 10.0 on acer travelmate 4650

Hi- I am trying to install suse 10.0 from suse site. I downloaded the five CD's. When I reboot the acer with the first CD in the driver, the screen displays
A:\ which I think is my hard drive. If I enter E:\, I access the CD drive. If I enter dir, it shows SUSE-1~1 ISO. What do I do from here? Thank, Teabelle

This is not exactly a laptop -specific problem

First time i ever burned a cd image to a blank cd, i just copied the image to a cd as data. This provided me with a non-bootable cd, showing the .ISO as an archive on it... Sounds like you did the same. You should specifically burn the ISO image to cd. What program do you use for burning cd's?

Like niwde posted you did not burn the CDs correctly.
What CD burning application did you use to create the CDs? Make sure you select "Burn from Image"
