Pop the disk in to the Mac, and then turn the power on.  As you are booting it up hold down the ALT/option key (in between the Ctrl and apple/command key) and a disc should appear on screen, this will allow you to boot from the disc Smiley

Are you absolutely sure that you are doing a clean install (by changing the settings via a button in the bottom left corner) rather than an attempted upgrade?

That one caught me out a couple of times.

Sounds like you are doing the "upgrade install", do like Sam says and use the "clean install" option.
