It has nothing to do with SBM. You made the CD improperly, selecting an option "make bootable" in Nero or a similar option in other burning software. The downloading faq covers that and several other things that you'll also need to know to get a reliable burn. Read the entire FAQ, check the md5 of the iso that you downloaded, burn it slowly according to the directions in the FAQ and it very likely will boot just fine.

That was one of your mistakes. I knew that as soon as I saw the DR-DOS reference. But I expect that you have made other mistakes also, like not checking the md5 sum. So I pointed you to the FAQ, which covers all of the things that you'll need to know. If your next CD doesn't boot you'll want to read the entire FAQ and understand why.
