Mandrakes 10 OE install error


Hi. Last night I tried to install mandrake 10 OE. I encountered an error of idconfig failing or something. I had the option to continue and abort. Seeing as I had already partitioned my hdd I decided to continue. The error reappeared once the third cd had been installed and it went back to the start of the install. I then repartitioned my hdd so that windows had it all again. Is there something wrong with the cdís that I burned or is there something else wrong.

My system is a P4 3.02ghz with 1gb ram on a 112ghb hdd on a soltek 865gr board. Sry I canít be more specific but I only just got it yesterday so Iím still trying to set it up. Windows Xp Pro is installed.

Thx

If you knew the exact error that was coming up then we could figure out what the right problem is.. As for the CD being corrupted or damaged that could be possiblity, just not 100% that is the problem..
