Mandrake Installation Keep Rebooting on Presario SR1010NX


I recently got Compaq Presario SR1010NX box and trying to install Mandrake Linux 10. official.
I Boot the PC with Install CD1 in the CD Rom. I can see the first screen with the options to Enter or F1 to give options to install.
If I just hit Enter, since I am newbie to linux world i don't want to take a chance, I can see the progress bar for couple of seconds and then system reboots - This is in cycle.

If I select F1, well read some articles (thanx to google), and type text etc., I can see first two lines and then system reboots again -This is in cycle again.

I am totally
Please help me out in installation........
