Well, your post isn't very clear so I'll answer what I think you mean.

Assuming you are trying to boot into the install disk to do a reinstall or repair the disk permissions…
Press and hold the "C" key when booting up. This will load the disk, where you can do a reinstall or open the utilities in the menu bar under "Utilities".

If that doesn't help, just say so and we'll try to answer it.
Also, be more descriptive in what you are trying to do.

If you are trying to boot from the Mac OS install DVD then put in the DVD and when you restart hold down the C key.

If you don't have it, put the disc in and while rebooting, hold down the C key. Otherwise, pop the installation disc in while booted and simply double click the installer.
