Answer the question above.

If the answer is no, then go here: https://help.ubuntu....martBootManager
Create a boot floppy as instructed, and replace the Ubuntu CD with the RC.iso CD that you burned.

I answered the question earlier, no I don't see press any key to boot from CD.

I read the instructions at the link you provided, but I don't have a floppy drive. Any other suggestions?

Then, you're not booting from the CD.
Wrong boot order (did you save changes after changing boot order?), bad burn, bad CD, malfunctioning CD drive...

Out of all of them, wrong boot order seems the most likely. Make sure you hit the key for Save before exiting the BIOS setup.
To make sure that the CD is ok, try booting from it on another computer.

I tested the cd in another computer, and it would not boot. So I burnt another cd and I tried it in my computer and in another and again it would not boot. Is there a special way to burn the cd? I'm using Imgburn and I've changed the boot order and saved it.

If you are burning it as Bootable Cd it will not work.
You burn it as a IMG or a ISO and the file will make the cd bootable on it's own.

I burnt it as an ISO and still had no luck getting it to boot. :)
