Does it come up with any messages to say it's loading ReactOS?

It might not be booting from CD, it could be set to something silly like 
boot from first virtual hard disk.

Technically it has it's own BIOS and act's as, well a PC.  You could try 
going into the virtual BIOS (can't remember if VirtualBox has a BIOS or 
not - I believe it does).  Try the DEL key, F2 or F12 when the Inno logo 
appears.  When you get into the BIOS try setting CD as the first boot 

Sorry I can't suggest more, I haven't got VirtualBox installed at the 
moment or a ReactOS LiveCD handy.
