Somebody please help me with Mandrake 8?

Oh man! I just got a free version of Mandrake 8 off PCFORMAT's monthly DVD, and I have to say, I am a little frustrated.

I installed the O/S, exactly as the magazine told me to (in the free space within the Windows partition), and the system told me that the install was successful.

When I reboot, and select to load Linux, it shows me the multi-lingual welcome graphic, and there is a message at the bottom of the screen, that goes something like this:

"INI: version 2.78 loading..."

and it just hangs there. I get this message, no matter what option I choose (unless I select windows). What is going on? Somebody. PLEASE HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
