Mandrake 10 problem installing

I am going to make this simpler to read, so here is the reviesed problem. When I try to install mandrake 10, it doesnt do anything during startup, so i pull the CD out and put it back in. In comes up with a screen and asks me if i want to install, or install using a floppy, and other things. I click install but nothing happens. Please help.

*Laptop Specs
OS: Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4
Processor: Intel Pentium at 133 m/hertz
RAM: 128 meg
Hard Drive: 20 Gig

I realize its old, but i think it should work. If it wouldnt, what Mandrake should I use?

its probly best to use something like vector linux, its slack based and is ment for older computers. fairly easy to install aswell. or use debian with a light window manager.
