What URL did you download, specifically?

Verify your downloaded ISO against checksums.

Verify your burned CD against checksums (your CD-burning software should
offer this option).

Try another CD.

Try another drive.

Tell us EXACTLY what happens at boot, what is displayed, and what, if
any, error messages are displayed.

Follow up to the list with updates on what you've tried / what's failed.
