Help installing mandrake 10.0 from the harddrive

I am currently using mandrake 9.2, but i want to upgrade to mandrake 10.0. So i download the iso images onto my harddrive under mdk 9.2. And burn the boot.iso image, onto a cd rom, and start the installation process. But half way through the installation it would start giving me errors, basically it cannot find the packages need to install. But the iso images are on the harddrive, so i dont know what to do. Is there something i need to do to the iso images after i download them onto my harddrive. My guess is that its reading stuff from cd 1, but cannot read cd 2 and cd 3. so how do i get it to read cd 2 and cd 3 after it has installed all the packages from cd 1. Let me know. Thank You.

Easiest will be to burn all iso-files to cds, otherwise you would have to tell the installer to load the isos, but I have no idea how this can be done...
