Mandrake installation problem...

Mandrake Installation problem:

I have 3 hard drives and 1 cd rom. 2 WD 20 gigs on IDE0. Primary has 1 partition, with WIN98 installed on it, using half of the hard drive space. The slave is only using 1 FAT32 partition taking the whole hd's space, same for the Master on IDE1. The slave on IDE1 is a Plexor CDRW. When I start to install Mandrake, everything runs fine, except that when after I enter the security level, an error message pops up, saying:

Test_for_bad_drives: cant even read (Input/Output error)

Or something very similar to that.

Can anyone help me fix this problem?

Thanks in advance.
