Boot from DVD to install hangs

I have burned a DVD (I was out of CDs) image of PowerPC 8.2 to install on my
old iMac G3. However, it stops at the line that reads:

acd0: DVDROM <MATSHITADVD-ROM SR-8184/AA32> at ata0-slave UDMA33

What the heck does that mean, and why does it get stuck?

Thanks for any help,
