He needs to change the boot order in the BIOS to have it boot to the CD first instead of the hard drive. Most Dells default to the hard drive first. When you see the Dell Logo when you first boot, you can enter the BIOS by hitting F2 (F2 is the most common for Dell, but it can also be the DEL key or F1 key).
