Help with Burning mandrake 10.1 isos (Roxio)

Hey dudes, this is my first post here, so hello there!

Well... this is the problem; After downloading the 3 .iso files, I burned the first cd as a bootable .iso (with easy cd creator 7).

and this damn cd does not boot.

And YES, before you ask, the bios settings are 100% correct.

I feel kinda lost here

Thanks in advance pals

You might try burning again at a slow speed (no higher than 4x). ISO-image CD's don't
tolerate write-errors as other data or music CD's do.

OK. here we go again.
Just kidding.
First of all, of course, no cd-creator, because in fact it is cd-destructor

Use Alcohol 120% for best results
In the worst scenario Nero, but again burn image only at 24x speed, not faster!
Or use raw write
