Exclamation Boot from CD after installing Mantrake 10-1-rc

I installed Mandrake 10-rc, or how ever it goes, and have been unable to boot from cd after completeing the installation. I want to install Suse 9.0 pro because Mandrake did not run on my laptop. The gui would not work. I am dual booting with Winblows XP pro, and do not wish to format that partition. Can anyone give me a hand?

You have tried making the CDROM the first boot device via the bios, right?

Try downloading and burning the MandrakeMove program. You can get it from most of the sites that provide Mandrake Community 10.0. The MandrakeMove CD is a bootable CD complete with graphical user interface.

Good luck!
