error installing package: Idconfig-2.3.3-10mdk.i586

When i try to install madrake 10.0 it all goes fine untill i reach the screen that says choose the packages you wont, once i choose them it satrts to install then it says:

There was an error installing packages:
Go on anyway?

() Yes
() N0

If you click no it goes back to the select packages screen and when you try to install it again it does the same thing.

If you click yes to go on anyway it comes up with this:

There was an error installing packages:
Go on anyway?

() Yes
() No

I imagine if you click yes it goes on to another error...

So anyways i have no clue why this is going on, can anyone help?

with repeated errors like that, it probably means one of two things:

bad CD - can't read any more stuff from the CD

full HD - can't install any more stuff on the HD

I'm experiencing the same type of errors, just with different packages.

There was an error installing packages:
Go on anyway?

() yes

() no mikeboy99 mentioned. the errors just keep comming if you hit "yes" to go on.

I'm using the same cd set that I used to do the installation on my laptop (the machine I'm using to write this post) so I know its not the disks
also, I'm building a new computer, all the drives in it are empty. So its not a space issue either.

I've tried the disks in both of 2 cd/cd-rw drives in the machine as well, yet the situation reamains the same.

any suggestions?
