I see the links for mandrake 10, I have been looking for them, but what is the other file besides the 3 ISO's? Do I need that file also?

Howdy, here is a good slow mirror...

This is the PowerPack edition. There are actually 3 more CD's out there. You can find them all on That might be the fastest way to get them. There are also bittorent links to them.

Here is a good windows program for deciphering md5sums...

If you're burning iso's in windows its pretty handy. If you burn them in Mandrake, the program: k3b, (not a very intuitive name), will check the md5sum automatically.

After reading the thread, I can relate similar experiences. The Eltoredo CD, (fancy name for bootable in an x86 machine), can have problems being burnt and read in some older CD burners. However, they usually work in most ROM's when burnt correctly. Burning an iso at a slower speed definitely helps. Nero has a special, un-intuitive way of burning iso images, I think you go to File>Burn Image...> then select your iso.

Hope the links help everyone get into Mandrake. Itís my favorite flavor!

Good Luck!!

I had the same problem heres how i got it to work.

Make a boot floppy with Windows

If your computer cannot boot from the CDROM, you must make a
boot floppy under Windows as follows:

* insert the CDROM, then open the icon "My Computer", right click on
the CDROM drive icon and select "Open"
* go into the "dosutils" directory and double-click on the
"rawwritewin" icon (on CD 1)
* insert a blank floppy in the floppy drive
* select "D:\images\cdrom.img" in the "Image File" field (assuming
that your CDROM drive is "D:", otherwise replace "D:" as needed)
* select "A:" in the "Floppy Drive" field then click on "Write".

To begin the installation:

* insert the CDROM in the drive, as well as the boot floppy, then
* restart the computer.

Also you have to make sure you burend the Cds useing "burn from iso" in nero. hope this help.

Or just read the install.txt on cd 1

cheers all.
