If you have DOS installed or a DOS boot disk, change into the \BOOT
directory on the CD-ROM and type BOOT.  Otherwise you'll need to make
the appropriate boot disks.  See \BO\DISKS-I3\1997-05-\INSTALL.TXT or
wherever it is on your CD.

If your CD-ROM is quite old, it might help to know its brand and
settings (IRQ etc.).
