But i could not boot from dvd.. My laptop is dell inspiron-1525.. how do i solve this problem?
I am new to linux... And want to install it.
Well it would be better to go for a Linux version that could work on your computer, it would be better to go for something more mainstream and up-to-date. and it would be better not to cross-post.
How about starting again with something like an Ubuntu (Ubuntu itself, or Kubuntu, Xubuntu, for example, or just take any one and add the alternative GUIs with the package manager), Mint or Mepis? I'm sure that you'd be happier. Or, if those wouldn't work for you, maybe you would tell us what you think is 'bad' about them, so we could find another option.
