I'm new as well but I think you insert the cd before shutdown and then hit "C" to boot from optical media when you start up again.... if you don't want to , boot up holding option to give you a menu of media to choose to boot from, or boot up having the mouse in the clicked down position to eject your optical media

Take a look at the new thread I started. I listed pretty much all of the available bootup options.
