That is correct, you are about to install linux from CD, so you are seeing
the first screen of the installer output.

There are problems with the keyboard driver; for some people unplugging
the keyboard and this point and then plugging it in again clears the
problem.  I found that an old Compaq keyboard did not lock up at all.
You should be able to press <space> or <return> on that screen and get
the main menu of the installer displayed.
