CD Boot to install hangs

I am re-asking as it's rather urgent.
I have burned a CD of PowerPC 8.2 to install on my old iMac G3. It boots, but 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? More importantly, how do I fix it?

Thanks for any help,
