Did you check the md5 sums before burning the disks? When downloading really large files, there is quite a high chance of errors creeping in, so you should always
check tyour Linux bootloader into the bootsector of your main Linux partition, and use something he md5sums. There will have been a file called mandrake90sums (or something) in the same place as the .iso files you downloaded. You should download that as well. In Linux (if you choose to boot to RH
), there is already a program called md5sums
which you can use to check the iso images, if you choose to use Windows, then you can go to www.md5summer.org
and download ther Win32 version of the program.
