what you're describing sounds like the windows boot menu, this means that you're leaving
it too long before you're pressing buttons, because windows has already booted.
the very first screen just as you turn on the computer should have a line somewhere
saying something like
press "something" to enter cmos menu
on a dell i think that you need to press F2, on others it's the delete key, it could be others
on other bioses.
you need to keep pressing this untill you get to the bios menu, where you will have
to change the boot sequence to let the cd boot first.
