Trying to get my System to boot from CD

I just downloaded the following file from Novel:


I thought that all I would have to do is burn the ISO image (using the "Record Image from Image file" option in Easy CD Creator 5) to a CD, set my system to boot from CD in BIOS and then begin the installation. When doing so, my computer looks to the CD for a few seconds, and then boots Windows from my HD. What am I missing here?

P.S. The computer I'm planning to install Linux on is rather old, but I believe it should work for the sake of learning Linux:

Abit KT7 MB
AMD Athlon 800 MHz
384 MB RAM
GeForce 2 MX-400

Thanks in advance.

Sheesh! Nevermind, I didn't have my CDROM drive setup properly in BIOS.
