Haiku Wouldn't Start

Haiku would not start / CD-ROM went round and round / Guess I'll wait a month
Hi, folks...I downloaded Alpha 1 and tried installing it on an eMachines T2240 eTower, 2.2 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, 32 GB hard drive. Made the CD with the ISO image to install. Put it in the computer, restarted it. The Haiku start-up screen appeared and the seven icons indicating progress lit up, but that was it. Never got the "Install" button option, and safe mode didn't help. The DVD drive showed signs of progress, spinning and spinning, but ultimately just stopped. Booting from the CD didn't help, either.
Love the logo, though! :-)
