Angry Suse 9.3 install issues

I recently was given a copy of Suse 9.3 Professional. I'm planning on installing it on my Gateway 600 series laptop with Windows XP currently on it. Created all 5 of the iso's, burned them to cd's. When I restart my laptop to run the installation to install Suse, and wipe out Windows, nothing comes up. Boot sequence is right on point, made sure the ISO's were complete, at this point I'm boggled. Does anyone have any advice on how I can get this install up and running?

My laptop is as follows:
Gateway 600yg2
P4 - 2.2Ghz
512 Ram
64 MB ATI Mobility

Burn ISO as image, Try to burn a

DSL (Damn Small Linux), or any other live cd image and see if it boots. You may also try to boot from a grub boot floppy then partition the drive as ext3 then install.
