Isolinux error during Slackware 9 install Boot


I'm really new to the whole linux thing, and I decided finally to install linux on one of my machines, but I got the following error when I ran the Slackware 9 iso:

isolinux: Failed to locate CD-rom device; boot failed
ISOLINUX 2.01 2003-01-03: Loading spec packet failed, trying to wing it...


I get no further than this error, and I've tried to re boot several times; no luck.

Sounds like your computer can't boot from a CD.

Try getting a boot disk.

i got and used two different boot images, the "bare.i" and the "lowmem.i" images, and tried to use them at least.

no luck there, either..."Boot failed" message.
