Did you copy the .iso to the CD or did you burn the .iso to CD? Big difference. Also do you have the BIOS set to boot from the optical drive? Burn the .iso to disk, not copy it to disk. When you are done you should see many folders and files on the CD. If you only see one big .iso on the CD then all you did was copy it.
If you don't know what I am talking about then do a search for burning .iso to disk. Then set your machine to boot from CDROM or whatever the optical drive is. Then put in the install CD, turn on the machine and follow directions.
You don't install Linux from within windows. You need to boot from the Linux CD.
