Change the boot order in the BIOS. It is trying to network boot (PXE), and in the absence of that it doesn't know what to do.  Change it to CD first, floppy second (if present) and hard drive third. Disable PXE or make it fourth, whatever is possible. Since we don't have ANY details about the machine, this is the only help available.
