    I guess you're trying to install linux while running windows. You can't do that. For installing linux, you need to place cd in the drive, reboot the system, from the BIOS set the first boot device to cd-drive, then save the settings, computer will be rebooted and linux cd will boot the you can install linux.
    CAUTION:- If you do not know about partitioning or are installing linux for the first time, please consult with someone or else post the details about your hard disk partitions in Open Source section of the forums, then go about installing linux or there are chances that you might wipe off your windows partition.
