Install CD won't read...

I burned Mandrake 9.1 Beta 3 using Nero on Win XP. I used the 3 CD's to install on my home computer. I take the CD's to my dad's house, and his computer won't boot or read them. When I put them in the drive under Win 98, it says there is 1 CD audio track that is 1k in size, modified 1/1/95. What in the world is up with that? I know the CD's worked fine yesterday...

Maybe it's his BIOS? Or maybe you took the wrong CD Check into forcing his BIOS to boot from the CDROM device...
