how did you burn the cd as a data disk ( just one file called "dsl-4.4.6.iso") or disk image ( a bunch of files on it )
also you need to reboot with the cd in the drive .

What kind of laptop is it? I ask because sometimes on a first boot while investigating the hardware it seems to hang for a long time on somethings. Give it a few minutes to see if it goes. If not you might have an issue with a hdd controller or something.
