Unhappy Mandrake 8.2 installation

When I boot up from Mandrake 8.2 cd and hit enter to install,a whole bunch of different things come up. At the end it says:
code: ac aa 84 c0 75 fa 8b 44 24 08 83 f8 04 77 27 83 f8 03 72 22
<0> kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
it goes no further.I have removed all of my other hard drives so I don't have a conflict with my windows duel boot.) and just left a WD 1.25 Gb hard drive to install Linux on.(So I can choose which HD I want to boot from. rather than adding it to my duel boot.)
My system specs are:
Soyo SY-P4X4000 DRAGON ULTRA Mother board
Pentium 4 2.8 GHZ Processor
PNY verto Geforce Ti 4600 video card
Sony CR-RW Drive
Sony DVD Drive
100Mb Zip drive
Any help would be highly appreciated,
I'm new to Linux.

probable causes...

* bad cd
* mandrake is trying to load some modules that are crashing.

what would be interesting are the lines above...
code: ac aa 84 c0 75 fa 8b 44

I have removed all of my other hard drives ...
And the one that is left is bootable?

If you downloaded the 8.2 CDs, then check their md5sum values.

Thanks for the reply's. The cd is not downloaded. I installed it into another computer, with the same hard drive and it worked perfectly. I put the hard drive back in my computer and I get to the Linux boot menu and choose Linux. The following is what comes up on the screen:
tty s04 at port 0xc000 (irq=11) is a 16550A
block: 128 slots per queue, batch = 32
RAM DISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 32000K size 1024 blocksize
uniform multi platform E-IDE driver revision 6.31
ide: assuming 33 MHZ system bus speed for PIO modes override with idebus=xx
unable to handle kernel paging requests at virtual address 00030002
printing Eip:
*pde = 00000000
Oops: 0000

processor swapper cpid:1, stack page= dffc30001
Stack: (I get a bunch of numbers, too many to list)
call trace: (More numbers)
code:ac ......
<0>kernel panic: attempted to kill init!

My Motherboard uses RAID, if that matters. I know in the Linux manual it says it dosn't support IDE RAID, my motherboard manual says it uses ATA RAID and says it supports Linux.
