Problems installing Mandriva

Hi there

I am trying to install Mandriva. Here is my problem.

Machine is P4, 2.4GhZ, with CD rom and 1 GB ram.

It boot correct from the CD, when I get the screen, where i can choose enter to start and F2 for more options I press enter and the install screen appears, but then it freezes. I have tried it on 2 servers of the same type with the same problem. I have burned 2 new CD to check if this was the problem. I have installed the same version on a newer server, and that worked out ok.

Any ideas are welcome. THX
