    I don't think that your computer is unable to boot from the CD, I think you just burned it wrong, since you only get the ISO file on the CD. See the Nero FAQ for info on burning ISO files correctly:

    Don't use the bootable CD option. Open Nero and put your blank disk in the drive. Click the File menu and select burn image. Find your Slack ISO and select it. Then just tell Nero to burn it.

    The bootable cd option is when you are making your own bootable compilation. I use one to make a giant bootable rescue disk with all of my mobo's bios files and so on. You don't need it if the ISO is already bootable.

    aright cool, but still, the CD-ROM is not a bootable device for my comp...should I hook up my HDD to another comp, load it from there, then fix the boot drive and driver information then?

    It's not a bootable device at all? Or it just isn't set up in the BIOS? Regardless, you can make an install floppy.

    Go here and follow the instructions to make a floppy that will boot the installer. Then you can use your distro CD.

    Yes, unless you see your CD drive somewhere else on that list.
