How to make a Mandrake 9.2 installation DVD?

I have downloaded the entire Mandrake 9.2 tree from ftp mirrors. I have tried installing from the hard drive -using a boot floppy made with winrawwrite.exe. The installation begins fine but after after mouse and language selection, there is an error message saying that partions overlap at certain sectors. The error does not go away whether ext2 or ext3 partitions are used, even though Mandrake 9.1 installs well.

So I gave up the hard disk route and thought to use the dvd:
I burnt the whole tree onto a DVD but cdrom.img fails to read the dvd. Can someone help?
