Can you boot Windows from your CD?
It would be surprising if you could not.
But if you really need to change your BIOS setting
(which I think is unlikely)
you will probably see on the screen when you boot
a message like "Press ESC to enter BIOS".
If you don't see such a message you'd have to look it up in your manual.
But it is much more likely that there is something wrong with your CD.
Where did you get it?
If it is a home-made copy,
the technique for making a bootable CD was probably not followed.
Incidentally, if you have a floppy drive
you can find the means to make a floppy boot disk on the CD --
or get one from RedHat's web-site --
and boot from that.
