Have you set the BIOS to boot from CD/DVD?

(Basically when the machine boots you may have to press a key to get 
into the BIOS, this might be the delete company, or F1, F2 maybe). 
There should be an option in there to select the startup sequence.

On some machines you can also select a temporary boot device (on my 
machine for instance if I press F12 at boot up I can select to boot from 
CD/DVD, USB hard drive etc.

It might also help if you can tell us what you see in Windows when you 
put the DVD in.  Do you just see one file for instance 
edubuntu-10.10-dvd-i386.iso or do you see a selection of files and folders?
