its not recommended to run a server OS on a laptop. Usually a laptop doesn't have enough horse power.

You set the boot order in the bios to cd/dvd first then hard drive.

You should see a message upon boot up 'strike any key to boot from cd'

This assumes the cd you have is bootable. If in doubt test it in another machine.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
