I do not have experience in using the CD as a boot loader. So, I can't comment as to whether or not that could be causing you problems (although it seems unlikely).
Can you please let us know what graphics card you are using and post a copy of your xorg.conf file.
Possible solutions may be found at the following reference as well:

It doesn't have a graphics card, maybe a built in one (but it would be very old and weak).
I'll get back to you on the xorg.conf file, and the xorg FAQ didn't work for me.It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
