you can't install linux from within windows. it's not a windows program. leave the dvd in the drive and reboot the machine. if you're not greeted by the mandrake installer then you will have to change the boot order in the bios so that it checks the dvd drive before the hard drive.

I did start up with the DVD in and nothing do I change the order? I tried to run Knopix from a live cd and it booted, but didn't work, norton partition magic also worked like that.
