Sounds like you're trying to install Mandrake from within XP. I personally don't trust that feature. Try rebooting with the CD in your drive, and install from there (if it just automatically starts booting XP, then you know either your BIOS isn't set or there's a problem with your disc/drive).

I know the Mandrake Disk is good it boots fine in other puter.Checked bio's still shows cdrom is set first boot,so I guess I'll change the room drive and see if that changes anything.Thank you!
