What happens when you try to install Vista from the disk? Does the setup start, or does it just try to go in to the existing installation? Are there any error messages?

How are you trying to install Vista? You should try booting from the Vista disk, and following the onscreen instructions.

OK, you need to enable the DVD drive to be the first boot device. Try following the instructions from this link.

Once configured, you should be able to turn the computer on with the Windows disk in the drive and it should boot from it starting the installation.
