Can't boot from CD


I have a Gigabyte K8M800-8237 Motherboard. With an AMD3700.

I'm having trouble booting from a CD. I have the manual for the motherboard, and there is NO boot option menu. But there is a priority list in the bios. I set CD drive to the first priority. I know I burned the CD's correctly becuase they boot on other computers. I was wondering if anyone could help me out and help me get my mobo to boot from the CD drive.

Thanks
