Question Mandrake 9.0 install problem

I had a System with dual partitions, with both XP and Mandrake 8.1 installed without a glitch. Now I have a new computer, 40gig XP Pro, 40 Gig partition empty....... I just recieved Mandrake 9.0, and when I attempt to install it after boot up, it says "loading installation" ........then everything goes blank, the CD stops, and my Cap Locks and Scroll Locks start blinking? What is this all about? Is my install disc bad?

Never had a problem with installing 8.1 on my last system.
