Generally you download your distro, burn it to a CD/DVD and boot to that media. A lot of modern distros have a live CD and you need to double click an icon on the desktop to initiate installation.

There is no inbuilt problem that stops HP pavillion from installing Linux. There most probably was a problem with the CD or your OS copy. Why don't you try reinstalling from a different set of CD.
