Fatal Error In Mandrake 10.0 Setup

OK so i have decided to make the big swith from xindows to linux. The distro i chose was Mandrake. So anywayys i tried to install it and i got to the install part and i clicked enter so then it starts "loading memory" the progress bar goes like 25% then the progress bar disapears and i get text saying "error in exec. of stage2 :-(
trying to execute '/usr/bin/runninstall/2'
from the install action volume the following fatal error occured
I cant recover from this.
You may reboot your system"

and yes i have tried using disk 2 but no luck :-(

Have you checked the disks? Are they clean? Did you check the MD5 sum before burning (assuming these are downloaded and not retail)? Or try them in another machine (meaning in another CD-ROM drive)?

The first thing you want to confirm is that the problem is not with the disks themselves; if not, then we can narrow the field to find the problem on your PC.
