AmigaOS 3.9 assumes that you already have 3.1 or 3.5 installed.  You use
that existing system (with a CD-ROM drive) to run a program on the 3.9
CD that creates a 3.9 boot floppy.

You then boot from that 3.9 boot floppy, and it installs AmigaOS 3.9 from
the CD-ROM.

AmigaOS 3.1 and earlier were all floppy-based installs.
