Ummmm....Unless you use VMWare you wont be able to boot OS X on a PC. But that also includes a few hacks to get it to not lookf for Apple hardware. Aside from that i dont think you will get it to work.

Umm that is for the new Apple computers. They are going to Intel processors. It is not for PCs it is still for Macs. As for your other problem, have you changed any options in your BIOS lately? Check to make sure you can boot from CD before it goes to your HDD.
