Unhappy How do I install Linux Mint 14 from DVD?

I got a DVD with linux Mint 14 "Nadia" thinking it would install on auto run but no, any ideas? I want to install it on a removable hard drive.

So what have you tried and what happened after you booted the DVD? Do you have anything on the drive now? If you have multiple drives you will need to identify the external. You should have multiple options under the installation type screen. Take a look at the link below which has a detailed tutorial on installing it:
