Just got a Lenovo laptop with free DOS installed on it. I followed instructions on Ubuntu site and downloaded ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso file.

I did burn the same to a DVD and trying to boot which is not happening.

Any help regarding the same is greatly appreciated.

Just to clarify, do you mean that the machine will not boot from the DVD or that the DVD boots but never starts Ubuntu? – Mordoc Mar 23 '13 at 3:29

You need to change the boot order and move the priority of booting from dvd to first. I think you can do it in BIOS.
