reboot and check your BIOS options ("boot order" or similar).

"i see only

You would use bios to select the options for hard drive or dvd. When you see that menu, the hard drive has been booted. I doubt Suse 11 has the ability to use manual edits to grub and boot to dvd but it is possible. You'd have to temp edit one of those choices (maybe add new one) to then select the dvd. Not easy or good for that system.
