You need to be a bit more specific about the problem.

What screen resolution are you setting mandrake to when you are installing and what resolutiondo you run windows on in that screen?

Were did you get the cd from? Did you download it and burn it yourself? if so, then it's likely you got a bad ISO or a bad burn. Please be more specific next time, your new, so we'll forgive you...

I had the same thing with 10.1, bad ISO images floating around I think. 10.0 was rock solid for me.
