Mandrake Linx 10 - no go on my Compaq


I just got myself a Mandrake Linux 10 distro and have found it wont install on my Compaq Presario 2548 Laptop. I find this strange because version 8 installs and another "live" distro installs but not version 10 of Mandrake. I go to automatic install and when it gets to the where it runs thru the stage where it comes upwith the version number up the top of the screen the time it was built..then on the bottom it has alt f1 alt f3 and alt f4 options which don't work..i have tried to install it in expert mode but it still wont install..

Can anyone help?
