Question Mandrake 10.1 instalation


HI,

I am new in Linux and have some problem during my first installation of it.

I wanted to install Mandrake 10.1 official into my laptop, however, there are some error message pop up when the installation run.

After the welcome page, I hit the enter button to start installation but it come out with a message of could not open compresses ramdisk file {/sysroot/tmp/image/install/stage2/mdkinstage2.bz2}


what is that error message means ? I don't have any idea. Ramdisk?
Is that indicate that the file doesn't exist in my CD ??

Hope for further assistance..

Thank you.

Regards,
Billy

the unable to detect the files means that the file in the CD corrupted ? but i have run cd verification after burning ...

Okay nevermind .. i will try to download a new fresh iso.

tell you the result ... i just scared that my computer can't support ...
By the way, do i need to do hard disk partition first before the installation ?

thanks.

Regards,
Billy
