Okay... Here's my problem: I have downloaded all three ISO images for Mandrake 10... That's all that works right
First I tried installing it the same way I had done with Fedora, with a boot floppy. (I left Fedora, yes, but that deserves a whole other thread).
the boot floppy didn't work... it started up, and for one reason or another gave me a GRUB 0.92 screen asking for the Kernel... Mandrake isn't even installed.
so that was it for the Hard drive install, because it just opened up a dated version of GRUB.
I then decided to try burning the full tree from Mandrakes's first CD, only to find that my computer still can't boot from a CD.
okay, no problem, there's an image that you can put on a floppy that will make
it boot from the CD... works fine; floppy boots, starts the CD, then gives a black screen. nothing on it, keyboard input has no effect, and no mouse...
Then I decided to try the easiest thing I could possibly think of. double clicking the "autorun.exe" file. it starts the Mandrake installer, I tell it to install, and a message pops up saying tht my computer must reboot to start the install program. I click "OK", my computer reboots and...... I get the Fedora Core GRUB bootloader.
Why can't I get mandrake to install?
