mandrake install freeze

Hi, I'm loading mandrake 9.1 ( or trying ) and it freezes at the exact same spot each install attempt.

After I add a user and click next, it runs for about 3 seconds and freezes. It seems to be getting stuck on installing the bootloader. When I reset the computer, it freezes after outputting "GRUB" to the screen. The iso's have been MD5'd.

Any ideas? Thanks...
