From your photos, the only drive you have available is an 30GB IBM/Hitachi hard disk. There is no CD/DVD drive listed in the Devices section. The boot sequence you have is fine.

You should be able to access the Devices section directly and be able to move to IDE Secondary. From there, you should be able to enable it using something like the + or - keys.

Being a student on a I.T course and making some errors (on purpose) and from what I understand from making errors with your question is that either some of your cables are faulty or the CD-Rom's not powered to the motherboard, am I right or not?
