Tried rebooting with the Install DVD in the slot/tray and holding the "C" key when you hear the startup chime?

If it works, try repairing Permissions/Disc using Disc Utility in the Utilities Folder on the install disc.

Open System Preferences and look in the System section for Startup Disc and see if the install disc shows up there when it's in the drive. If it does show, select it as a Startup Disc and restart.

Also look in Disc Utilities to see if the Disc is showing up in the left pane.

Another thing to check is Finder -> Preferences and make sure that in the General section there's a tick in the CDs, DVDs, and iPods of "Show These Items On The Desktop:"

On disk utilities It doesnt show Disk on left panel
on Finder> Pref>it is checked on cd,dvd,ipod
