Installation Problem w/ Mandriva 10.2

After downloading the ISOs, and burning three installation CDs, I began my installation of Mandriva 10.2. However, after the first two steps (choosing a language and agreeing to the user agreement), the installation stays put. I've waited quite sometime, and it just stays, does not move onto the next step. Any suggestions for getting past this point?

I spent hours DLing from the raw tree the other night, only to find the ISOs posted this morning and seeing that I had wasted hours of downloading. I'm dying to get the new Mandriva up and running. Help, please.

I hope you got your ISO's from the MandrivaClub. They post MD5 checksums for their ISO's, which you can check when you load K3B to burn them. If the checksum does not match, you just made a beer coaster...

If you are already a club member, I apologise for my rant :>

If your checksums match, it may be a hardware issue. Good luck.
