It sounds like you didn't burn the CD properly. An iso is supposed to be an image, so that when you burn it, it will "translate" itself, into many other files. Kind of like "unzipping" something. Try re-burning the CD using "burn iso" option.

If you've done it successfully your first CD (CD1) should look something like:
doc (directory)
dosutils (directory)
images (directory)
isolinux (directory)
lang (directory)
Mandrake (directory)
misc (directory)
... etc

From there, are you dual booting or making the whole machine Mandrake?
