If it is a black disc as pointed out by Nick, boot and hold down 'C' immediately after the chimes. System install discs do not 'self boot'.

Your eMac will only boot from Tiger OS X.4 or earlier and NOT from Leopard OS X.5 nor Snow Leopard OS X.6.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
