Default Boot from CD?

Okay, I just got a new computer:

Foxconn 875A02-6EKRs w/ HT supports 533/800MHz FSB
w/ 1Gbps LAN, 6-channel Audio codec, 1394 connection,
and dual channel DDR ram support.

CPU: Intel Celeron D Prescott Core 2.8GHz L2 256KB

Corsair Dual Channel DDR PC2700 RAM 1GB

HDD: WD 120GB ATA/100

Sony DVD RW Double Layer drive and Sony DVD-ROM Drive

Thermaltake 420W PSU

Logitech wireless kb and mouse

Aspire X-Dreamer II case

and soon a PNY FX5700 AGPX8 128MB Graphics card with
TV tuner.

This board has Superboot, SuperSpeed, SuperBIOS-Protect, and SuperRecovery.

Question is, I installed Windows 2000, soon to be Win XP Pro, and got my utilities installed. I restarted the computer and it won't boot from the hard drive. I chekced my IDE cable and my jumper settings and everything is okay. I turned off Superboot and changed the boot sequence to only boot from the hard drive.

No matter what I do, the board still wants to boot from the CD-ROM. Checked the jumper settings on the DVD-RW and DVD-ROM drives too.

Am I missing something?

Yes, I did change the settings in the BIOS and it should boot from the HDD. But, it doesn't I don't know why. I downloaded service pack 4 now for Windows 2000 and I am going to see if that has anything to do with it.
