Installing MANDRAKE!!!


Ok, I have 2 hard drives, and I just downloaded the 3 ISO Images of Mandrake... And now I have NO CLUE at all how to get mandrake on my computer, does any one know how? I went to the REDHAT website and it was too confusing, can anyone break it down for me please?

Burn each iso onto a cd. Then, pop the first cd in your computer and the installer autmatically begins.

make sure your bios has your cd drive as the first boot device. reboot with the first cd in the drive.

did you burn these as bootable iso images or just burn the iso files onto disks?

what are you using to burn them?
if it is nero in windows close the wizard and go to file- burn image and search for the image, make sure to finalize it too.

edit: not saying you don't know, but just incase...
leave the iso's like they are , don't extract them.
