You can install it on virtual machine (vmware, qemu, virtualbox) or real hardware. The second option is risky so you might want to use old pc to install it on so it doesn't screw up the one you use. Anyway: http://www.reactos.org/wiki/Installing_ReactOS and use google before posting.

Please describe the problem more clearly.
Saying "All though I cant even start my computer" is not very precise.
Your Computer does not power on? Maybe You have broken power supply?
Also remember to set the setting in BIOS named simillar to "Boot Priority"
in such a way:
First boot device: CD/DVD Drive
Second boot device: HDD
Other boot devices may stay as they are now.
Also give us the Motherboard name and type, what is the medium for data (normal HDD/SSD HDD) and on which connector it operates (IDE - frequently wide grey "tape" with one cable marked in different color, or SATA - narrow usually red cable).
PS:
See this thread for images how it looks like.
