Bumping this (which I RARELY if ever do --bad Netiquette and usually not necessary)
--BUT am I REALLY the only person who's had trouble installing on a Laptop) with the Boot CD.
I dom't really want to download another 3 - 4GB for say 2006 if THAT has a problem installing as well.
The only other piece of info I can give is that my Laptop already had a DUAL boot SUSE 9.3 and Windows XP pro (with SP2) with SUSE's GRUB installed. --Maybe Mandrake can't get rid of the GRUB / SUSE Bootloader before starting it's work --surprising as normally the whole start up is loaded into a RAMDISK from which partitions can get formatted etc etc.
