[DR-DOS] A:\> at boot up of install


I just downloaded mandrake 10.1 last night. I awoke this moring and burned the CD's.

When I placed the #1 disk in and booted up I get to a screen
Caldera DR-DOS 7.03
Copyright (c) 1976, 1998 Caldera, Inc. All right reserved
[DR-DOS] A:\>/DELAY=OFF
Command or file name not recognized

[DR-DOS] A:\>



damn, I was hoping to see my screen boot up to a nice little " To install Mandrake 10.1 please press ENTER.

Any idea on where I should go now with this.

There's nothing on this Disk at all.

Thanks for your help.
Doug

Nope, but I think I know

I used Nero and when I made the selection to burn I selected bootable cd... I need to go back and see if I have an option for an ISO.

Yeah, IIRC, this problem comes when you burn the image incorrectly.

Nero has an option, under "Tools", I think, to "Burn Image". That's the one you want.
