Can not boot from sata dvd+/-rw drive

Hello,

I have just built a computer with all SATA drives. 2 of these drives are DVD+/-RW drives. 2 of these drives are hard drives. I have set up a RAID 1 with the 2 hard drives. I would now like to install an operating system, but my machine will not boot from either DVD+/-RW drive. I have checked the BIOS, and there is no entry in the boot sequence for either DVD+/-RW drive. My motherboard is an Intel D915PBL. How do I boot from a DVD+/-RW drive?

Thanks.

    Okay, I flashed by BIOS, and the updated BIOS adds the DVD+/-RW to the boot sequence menu. Sorry I posted too soon.
    Thanks for reading.
