    Is this the full version of Windows you're talking about, or just the update?

    i believe it is the full version, when i downloaded it, it was about 600 MB, so i am hoping it is, and to burn it i also used toast 8 with the sio function

    That doesn't mean it's the full version. The full version and the upgrade are about the same size, but hte upgrade checks to see if you've already installed windows. The problem here is probably that either you downloaded a fake/incorrect disk image or the disk is not labeled correctly. You might be able to start up while holding option and choose the CD labeled "WINDOWS".
