Unhappy Install problems!


I am having a major problem installed Mandrake v8.1. I created a bootable CD that boots into the first setup screen. Whenever I hit [enter] to go to the setup it tries to search for the install files. After attempting, a screen pops up that says the install files cannot be found! I've burned the unpacked ISO twice now and still no difference. I'm stumped and can't get it installed and need some help. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like its trying to do an upgrade, try it in "expert" mode and select "install" with your mouse.

Perhaps the ISO got corrupted during the download. Have you tried to d/l it again?
