Go into your bios and set your CD drive to be the first boot option. If a bootable CD is present, the computer will prompt you to hit a key to boot from CD.

Windows will start to do its thing automagically. If you have SATA drives, hit F6 when prompted to load the SATA drivers.

Windows will prompt you for the rest of the install procedure.

Once windows is loaded, install your motherboard drivers first, reboot as necessary.

Then move on to installing expansion cards (sound, video, lan, etc).
