    I load live cd with stop and go.
    I don't know what that means? You download the iso image of Mint, burn it to a CD as an image and insert it into your CD drive and reboot the machine.

    You'll need to explain more what exactly you did. It could be a bad download or an incorrect/bad burn.

    i dont know but it takes too long to reboot and it stops in loading logo i have to move into different window with CRTL+ALT+F1 and then it loads desktop but in this desktop there is no install script button. There are two buttons Computer and mints Home buttons.
    I need to start with in terminal command line.
    And in boot menu i choose first choice.

    As I indicated above, it could be a bad download or a bad burn. Can you post a link to the site and the specific download you used. There are a large number of sites and different types of installation CD/DVDs for Mint.

    I agree with yancek, check your CD/DVD for errors. You can check the links in my signature to find helpful info on how to do that.

    The most reliable downloads I have found, are from distrowatch.com. Mint is available there for free, and as stated, download the iso, burn to cd, and use as a live cd. The cd will give you the option of use from disk or install.

    You should check the cd/dvd for errors.
