I have burn't the CentOS 4 server cd iso file to cd and have placed the disc into the server. I have made boot priority the cd rom and have turned on the server to continually get "error loading operating system".

I made sure that i copied the file as an iso file. I made sure the disc was made a bootable disc. I am very new to linux/unix systems and may have missed a step perhaps?

You need to burn the cd FROM the iso image (check your cd-burning application documentation) ... not burning just the iso file itself on a cd ...
The cd, once burned, contains a lot of files/directories ... and not only one file
