so you downloaded the cd's 1,2 and 3?
well, you'll have to change your BIOS so it says that you can boot from cd
then you'll have to put in the bootcd (normally cd 1)
if everything went oke, you should see a mandrake installer starting up, which is very intuitive and easy to follow
be shure to know what kind of hardware is in your pc and how to divide your HD in partitions
maybe you should give us some more information as well:
are you installing linux on a clean machine, do you want to dual boot it alongside windows or do you want to replace windows with linux?
EDIT: if any of the terms I'm using aren't clear, then just post them and I'll try and explain
