You're booting from your first HDD, so your computer cames into the MBR and runs GRUB, in order to boot from a CD you have to enter the BIOS (usually F2 or <del> at boot-test) and set the CD-reader you're going to insert the install CD in in the first place on boot sequence. Insert your installation CD, save and reboot.
