What file did you download, was it the DVD iso?
What burning software are you using?

That's probably the iso. Check the file name. It should probably be Mandrakelinux-10.1-Official-Download-DVD.i586.iso. Open your burning software and usually under the File menu there will be a selsction titled "Burn Disc From Image File" or something like that. Select that and browse to your downloaded file. This will extract the iso image onto the disc and it should be made bootable. I'm not familiar with your burning software, but most that are able to burn iso files will have a setup similar to that.
