I'm a totally newbie in the Linux field. Untill now I've just been using Win XP.
Here's the deal... I'm trying to install Mandrake on my extra hard disk and am planning to dualboot xp and mandrake. First I used PartitionMagic to create a swap partition of 500 Mb and an ext partition on my blank harddisk - capacity: 3 Gb.
Then I downloaded and burned 3 cdroms (mandrake 9.1 ISO). But I'm not able to boot from cd1.
Then I have tried creating a bootdisk, and it seems to work okay. After booting I get a screen where I can either press Esc to quit or Enter to "Install a new system or update a system running Mandrake Linux". I press enter and then I get this error message...
"That cdrom doesn't seem to be a Mandrake Linux Installation disk. Retry with another drive?"
What am I supposed to do??
Please help me... It's driving me CRAZY!!!!
