Edit: You posted the result while I was typing. That dir looks good, so I think it is nearly certain you burned the CD correctly.

I didn't suggest installing Linux, just rebooting into the installer to see if the CD boots and the display works.
Those Linux install CDs don't install Linux as soon as they boot. There is a significant amount of dialog to get through before they do anything to the hard drive.
I was suggesting you boot the CD just to see if it starts right.
is there a way i can copy/paste the results of the command promt?
Details depend on how you have it configured. What I did was
1) Right click in the window and select Mark
from the context menu.
2) Left drag to highlight a rectangle in the window including everything I wanted to copy.
3) Press the Enter key on the keypad to copy to the clipboard.
4) paste into my post with a normal ^v.
Depending on how things are configured, steps 1 and/or 3 above may require left click on the icon at the left of the window's title bar, then click on edit
then select Mark and Copy from there.
