Exclamation Mandrake v.10 Booting CDs

Hi, i burn Mandrake Official Linux v10... the problem is when i boot (already setted the BIOS for reading first the CD-ROM) the CD doesnt boot.. so i use a Floppy Disk, and it boots, BUT when it reads the CD #1, it says "IT SEEMS NOT TO BE A MANDRAKE LINUX INSTALLATION CD" or something like that...
so.. i'm stuck there...
I burn the cds with NERO, Data CD..
Any help ??
I'll apprecciate..
Thanks every one.

In nero there should be an option for burning an image (disc image or something like that) in one of the menus. When burning ISOs, you should use the 'burn image' method and not the data cd method. I think that's your problem.
