    The software you downloaded from apple is the drivers you will need for windows 8 after it is installed on the bootcamp partition. To start the actual bootcamp install you need to go to applications-utilities and room the actual bootcamp ap. this will walk you through setting up your new partition and installing windows 8

    Where did you obtain the installation DVD? Is it a genuine Microsoft pressed DVD-ROM?

    If you have the partition set up you can try booting from the Windows 8 disk at start up by holding the option key down down when you here the chime. From here select the windows 8 disk for start up and see if you can install it to the bootcamp partition.

    Turn computer off. Press the "Option" key down and turn on the computer. You can let go of "option" key after start up screen appears. Then select windows disk to boot and go from there.

    It should give you the instructions on how to do it. Connect the SuperDrive and insert the DVD. Open Boot Camp Assistant and follow the instructions there. It consist of dividing your disk to allocate space to Windows and create a USB drive for holding the Apple-specific drivers that are needed after installation.

    I encourage you to print out the instructions if these procedures are new to you.
