Hi Dark Player,
To always boot from cd:
1. Enter the BIOS. When you first turn your computer on, it should come up with something like "Press F10 to enter setup", along those lines.
2. Navigate to the Boot tab.
3. Change the boot order or priority so that it is; 1. CDROM 2. Hard Drive
4. Save and quit the bios.
5. Your computer should now boot straight into Slax.
