The problem is probably not with your CD but with the installation system 
not recognizing your CD drive controller.

Have you tried booting the installer with 'linux26' (to use a 2.6.8 kernel 
instead of the default 2.4.27 kernel)?

If your laptop has a SATA controller you may want to check:

See also the project page for the installation system:
