This may be a long shot but what kind of keyboard are you using?
I recall reading about problems with trying to boot from the CD
if you're using a USB or wireless keyboard. If that the case with
your setup, you might want to get a hold of a PS/2 keyboard (the
type with a round plug) and see if that makes any difference.
