are you talking about a linux distro? In most or all cases, if you downloaded it in a ISO image, be sure you burn the CD in an ISO image, but set at data. Data would only contain the single ISO file, whereabout burning the ISO image is burning all files like you'd normally see on the CD/DVD

Which distro? why not DVD, R easy loading!
R U boot from your CD in BIOS (or ESC to boot menu on Startup) but still not booting?
Do U have FREE space on the HD?
