I'm assuming you downloaded the iso images and then burned them to cd. Burning iso images is a little different then buring regular cds. Do you have many files and folders on your cds or just the .iso image on each?

Well that appears to be what should be on the disk. Have you tried booting directly to the cd instead of using a boot disk?
