Hmm your ISO's might be bad. Do an MD5 Checksum on those things to make sure they're good images

Syntax is "md5sum filename.iso". Then compare the sum to whatever you are inspecting.

I've read on mandrake club that there is a bug with Nero that causes what you describe. There is also a patch. Have a look on the club forums or check patches for Nero.

Here we goes (this is an addon to the upper message when you've downloaded the Mandrake 9.2 Download Edition ISOs with an windows bittorrent client and you're using Nero to burn them and you get the message "not enough free space" and you have the right media, 700Mb CDs):


- activate the overburning feature (by default at 82 minutes and use the menu Recorder and the option Burn Image to burnd the ISOs


- activate the overburning feature just like fro and use the menu File and the option Burin Image to burn the ISOs (here you can choose to use them as read only)


- download the patch from and follow the instructions


- download the patch from and follow the instrucions

That worked for me and hope that we'll not be disappointed by the 9.2 download ediion (as for me being forced to return to Slack 9.1 or Mandrake 9.1)


PS : this is what I've posted on mandrakeclub as answer
