looks like a corrupt cd2 -- did you check the MD5 hash? (commonly listed with large downloads)

what distro.

grub is a boot-loader.

i think most distros let you type in "Linux" by default to load the system, though i've never run mandrake.

...being unable to readily reference your download page, i cannot help you with MD5

You will need to re-install with a MD5 verified download, then again verify your ISO burns to make sure that they are being properly written to CD.

While you may have downloaded the file properly often burning software can be problematic, as can the CD/DVD writers themselves.

For more info click on MD5
