Errors during install of Mandrake 9


I'm trying to install Mandrake 9 on my secondary computer and i get an error message that says "We now use kernel PCMCIA support and this wont work with a 2.2 kernel". I hit OK and the installation goes on. Then when i choose the CD-Rom installation it gives me another error that says "I can't access the Mandrake Installation cd in CD ROM " I've been looking all over the net and cant find anything that works. Does anyone have any ideas?
